  • meta language to describe available options


  • $conf array vs. parsed object tree
  • make old TS blocks (re-)usable in new TS
  • encapsulated v1 objects embedded in v2 code
  • migration script for TS
  • install tool option for switching back to old TS
  • 100% v2 support in 4.3 plus 100% v1 support
  • v4 TS parser exchangeable
  • legacy code v1 -> v2 or v2 -> v1 ?
  • semi automatic conversion


  • t3editor
  • automagically documented
  • syntax checking

  • unitialized var detection
  • conditions not only based on TRUE/FALSE
