TYPO3 Release Packages (the downloadable tarballs and zip files) as well as Git tags are signed using PGP signatures during the automated release process. Besides that, MD5 and SHA2-256 hashes are being generated for these files. Find more details on verifying signatures and hashes in the infrastructure guide.

Example of verifying integrity of tar.gz package of current release:

wget --content-disposition https://get.typo3.org/8.7.42/tar.gz.sig
gpg --verify typo3_src-8.7.42.tar.gz.sig typo3_src-8.7.42.tar.gz


The usual upgrading procedure applies. No database updates are necessary. It might be required to clear all caches; the "important actions" section in the TYPO3 Install Tool offers the accordant possibility to do so.
