Typo development slowed down for a while after we released Typo 2.5.0 so we could make sure that we had a stable release for people to use. It’s been a couple weeks now, and Typo 2.5.5 looks good, so we’ve started working on the next release, which will be called Typo 4.0. We’re going to skip Typo 3.0, because it conflicts with Typo3.

The two biggest changes so far are tags and file upload support. Over the next few weeks we’ll add the beginnings of podcast support, unify our RSS and Atom feed code, and (hopefully) add the filter code that I’ve been working on for the last week. Our current wishlist for Typo 4.0 is available in the Typo wiki.

I’m starting to feel good about my filter code. It’s a huge patch–it currently touches 68 files, not including vendor updates. I have three or four things left on my to-do list, and then I’ll spend a bit of time doing audit, cleanup, and testing. Most likely it’ll be ready by early next week.
