Release Notes for TYPO3 CMS 6.2.12

This document contains information about TYPO3 CMS 6.2.12 which was released on April 16th, 2015.


This release is a bug fix release.

Known issue with outdated extensions

Extensions may ship an upgrade wizard to help you migrate your configuration to the latest version when major changes are introduced.

When loading the list of local extensions, the Extension Manager checks for each and every if such an upgrade wizard is available and, if so, if it needs to be run; that is, if the upgrade wizard icon should be shown.

If you experience a 500 error while loading the Extension Manager, it is very likely due to to an outdated extension and your PHP error log may show an error similar to

Got error 'PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  require_once(): Failed opening required 'PATH_t3libclass.t3lib_scbase.php'
in /path/to/typo3/sysext/extensionmanager/Classes/Utility/UpdateScriptUtility.php(111) : eval()'d code on line 25\n',

If this happens, you should simply manually unload the corresponding faulty extension by marking it as “inactive” in typo3conf/PackageStates.php and then update the extension to the latest version available in TER.
