Description

Hello,

I have a problem understanding that change:

https://docs.typo3.org/c/typo3/cms-core/main/en-us/Changelog/11.5/Deprecation-95222-ExtbaseViewInterface.html

Quote:

method initializeView() which was never actively used, calling that method will vanish in TYPO3 v12

But some lines later you can read:

that empty method will be removed in TYPO3 v12, but will still be called if it exists in classes extending ActionController

There can only be one truth. Since initializeView is still called in TYPO3 12 and TYPO3 13-dev, the last quote is correct. So the first quote has to be rewritten a bit.

I spent almost an hour trying to understand this change:
It seems that the call to ActionController::initializeView has been removed from the processRequest method and it should be avoided to call parent::initializeView in extension controllers.
However, as there is still a check for an existing initializeView in the processRequest method, extension developers can still use this method name to call in their own extension controllers.
