Breaking: #93083 - class.ext_update.php handling removed¶
Handling of old
class.ext_update.php update scripts has been
dropped: The core introduced a much more solid API for extensions to
perform upgrades with the release of TYPO3 v9. That API matured
and many extensions use it in favor of the clumsy
class.ext_update.php solution. Removal of this functionality
within the extension manager has been long overdue and is finally done
with TYPO3 v11.
class.ext_update.php was an old way for extensions to
perform upgrade steps. The TYPO3 core no longer supports this API.
Some old-style extensions may still rely on this script. It's usage has been discouraged since the new upgrade wizards API.
