Upgrade Wizard window shows a number of upgrade wizards, some of which are necessary for operating the new TYPO3 version and some of which are in fact optional or "legacy" functionality, like

  • compatibility7
  • form_legacy
  • rthehtmlarea
  • typo3db_legacy

While the category (mandatory, recommended, legacy, etc.) is already obvious (partly from the name) and the description, it would be more user friendly to show the legacy / not recommended / not mandatory update wizards in a different color or section and / or change the order to display them at the bottom.

Additionally, when running upgrade wizards from command line, it would be helpful to be able to run all mandatory / recommended upgrade wizards (if such a categorization exists):

Currently, you can only run all or specific ones.

For some, but not all, an informational prefix "[Optional]" is already used in title.

If this is used consistently, it would make some of my proposals above not necessary and would be a more easily implementable way of showing this information, e.g.

  • "[Optional]"
  • "[Mandatory]" (or "[Required]")
  • "[Legacy]" - for legacy stuff, e.g. compatibility7, form_legacy, rthehtmlarea, typo3db_legacy
