We produce a new TYPO3 release every six months. This means versions expire much sooner than before and that is why we came up with LTS. With the Long Term Support version you get three years support on TYPO3.

There is no extra fee for the LTS version; we make our very best work available to everyone on the same free terms. Upgrades to new versions of TYPO3 are and always will be free of charge.

h2. What does it mean for 4.5 development?
14
15
We want to include as many new features as possible in TYPO3 4.5. Considering that this version will be there for a long time, our focus is to:
16
17
* Have a clean code base - laying a ground structure for future releases
18
* Only including well tested and stable projects / features
19
* Support for Internet Explorer 6 will still be included in 4.5: But we will potentially drop this support in the next development version (4.6).
