Final Result TYPO3 4.2.0Beta1 seems to be still lower then alpha

Finally we had to give up to get a working TYPO3 4.2.0Beta1 TemplaVoila Site running. Still to many Problems occure and it seems that a lot of extensions won't work anymore in 4.2.0

Another possibility would be that TYPO3 is still not ready for PHP 5.2 and up! I am really sorry about this result.

Bug Reports:

Continue to test TYPO3 4.2.0Beta1 without TVP Extensions

Nevermind the next error appears. This time it is templavoila. After assigning the DS/TO and trying to edit the page:

Catchable fatal error: Argument 2 passed to t3lib_div::implodeArrayForUrl() must be an array, null given, called in D:\xampp\htdocs\t3\r2\typo3conf\ext\templavoila\mod1\db_new_content_el.php on line 282 and defined in D:\xampp\htdocs\t3\r2\t3lib\class.t3lib_div.php on line 1543

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to t3lib_div::array_merge_recursive_overrule() must be an array, string given, called in D:\xampp\htdocs\t3\r
he same is happening with other extensions from TER like TVP i.e.

perhaps even more extensions

We installed the tvp extensions and all went fine. We created a page and a TS Template for TemplaVoila imported a TVTemplate and wanted to edit now the first page.

TYPO3 4.2.0Beta1 currently without DAM

As Dam was causing a major failure we continue installing our extension like followed
We download from TER abctv
It gives us an exact list of the extensions we need to get a nice working TemplaVoila Backend.
Step by step (we skip the DAM entry) we are getting further until the templa_voila_importer.

Here we stop and want to test now the TemplaVoila Functionality
The Backend looks nice - especially the left column looks much better now.

We click on the NEW button on top of the middle column. It is asking as where to insert the page and gives us 1 possibilty. Fine - OK.

It says now

New record

Select a template for your new page:

and gives us a default template 0

Clicking on this 0 will show the formular to fill in the page data. Save and our first page is ready

Next step is our template:
As usual we need to create a root template. We copy and paste in our default TemplaVoila settings and safe. To import our templates we used the templavoila_importer.

Stuck again: Editing the page is not possible
This time we receive a very similar message like before but this time caused by TVP. Aset of extensions for TemplaVoila made by Aoabara (I hope his new TemplaVoila gets ready soon :-)

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to t3lib_div::array_merge_recursive_overrule() must be an array, null given, called in D:\xampp\htdocs\t3\r2\

Getting stuck with TYPO3 4.2Beta1 caused by an fatal error after installing dam. To solve the problem remove dam from your extensionlist in localconf.php and wait until Jean has posted his Patch for 4.2 in TER.

TYPO3 4.2.0Beta1 erschienen

Nachdem das Alpha Release drei eher zum abgewoehen war wollen wir nun mal sehen was mit Beta los ist.

Es faellt zuerst einmal auf, dass man nunmehr wieder das alte Installtool benutzt :-) das freut uns, denn bei dem Alha drei Release kamen wir nicht ueber die erste Seite hinaus - Seite des Installtools.

Nun - wie gewoehnlich flott geht nun die Installation von statten. Wir haben eine leere Datenbank erstellt und laden nun auch erst einmal die default Tables hinein.

Danach kopieren wir unsere standard localconf.php, mit den bei uns ueblichen Settings per Editor in die Bestehede localconf.php und laden das Installtool nochmals. Alles funktioniert, selbst der Test des ImageMagick laeuft problemlos gut und schnell.

Als erstes activieren wir noch einige System Extensions die wir gernbenutzen und testen wollen, wie z.B. den neuen T3Editor

Danach folgt
static_info_tables und dam

und dann geht erst einmal garnichts mehr.

Das komplette Systewird wegen diesem Bug blokiert und erst nachdem man ",dam'" wieder aus der $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['EXT']['extList'] = geloescht hat geht es weiter.

OH I am sorry - just realized I am writing in German - Mea Maxima Culpa - I will continue in English ;-)

We installed TYPO3 4.2 Beta1. everything went fine as the old Installtool has replaced the new buggy one from alpha. We installed static_info_tables and dam and get stuck with a major failure.
After deleting the entry ",dam" from $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['EXT']['extList'] =
and clearing all cache it worked again.

We are hoping Jean Gadinas Patch for 4.2 will solve this problem soon.
