Digital Asset Management (DAM) is a tool for organizing Digital Media Assets for storage and retrieval by categories, mimetypes etc. DAM is an enhanced version of fileadmin. Metadata can be added by hand or extracted automatically for assets and can be extracted by indexing tools and used in the frontend by various apps that already live in Extension Repository (TER).
What is the the project status?¶
DAM 1.3 was released in July 2012. This was the last feature release for DAM. It is compatible with TYPO3 4.5+. It is planned to maintain DAM until the end of life of TYPO3 4.5.
The main DAM functionalities will be in TYPO3 core starting with TYPO3 6.0. We aim to work on an extension Media Management that provides the important DAM features that will not be part of the core. More information on this topic will follow at a later time.
