The TYPO3 Association and the Neos team have begun negotiations about separating the Neos project from the TYPO3 Association. Work on Neos and its underlying PHP framework Flow started in 2006, originally intended as the successor of TYPO3 CMS. It has been continuously developed since then and is attracting a growing number of users and contributors. Knowledge gained in the process led to understanding that TYPO3 CMS and Neos are conceptually distinct products. Honoring this diversity, the TYPO3 Association, TYPO3 team and the Neos team have come to believe that separating the project on an organizational level will help the Neos project to be able to focus on its own product strategy and an infrastructure that will be dedicated to its own needs and opportunities. Transitioning Neos into its own technical and legal infrastructure is planned as a cooperative process to avoid friction and waste of resources. The TYPO3 team and the Neos team believe that both communities will continue in areas of shared technology and through friendships we have developed over the years. The TYPO3 Association and the Neos team are currently discussing the details for the transition period. As the TYPO3 Association wants to further develop into a more democratic and transparent organization, it will be asking its members soon to vote on how much support the Association should give the Neos Team in the transition period and beyond. We are confident that the separation will strengthen both Neos and TYPO3 and are looking forward to seeing each of the communities prosper. Neos-Team, TYPO3-Team & TYPO3 Association

The Agency Meetup Days in 2014 have been quite a success. Giving both the agencies and the marketing team the platform to discuss business related topics, along with others, is essential to enlarge the footprint of TYPO3 out there in the wild. With the 2015 edition we want to focus more on what we could do and involve as many people as possible in potential (micro-)marketing initiatives. We are now ready to announce the dates for the Meetups.
