Breaking: #72572 - Remove more deprecated miscellaneous functions and options

See forge#72572


Removed more deprecated miscellaneous functions and options:

  • Linking to a php file directly in ClickMenu has been removed.
  • Functionality of $TBE_STYLES['background'] has been removed.
  • The option DocumentTemplate->JScodeLibArray has been removed.
  • The option $TYPO3_CONF_VARS[SYS][displayErrors] set to "2" will throw an exception.
  • The deprecated icons fallback for actions-system-refresh and actions-system-extension-update-disabled has been removed.
  • An extension may not refer to ext:cms in composer.json or ext_emconf.php file. The fallback has been removed.
  • The method loadNewTcaColumnsConfigFiles has been removed.
  • Usage of the field "static_lang_isocode" has stopped working. Use the built-in language field "language_isocode" in sys_language records.


Using one of the mentioned options or methods will result in a fatal error or won't have any effect anymore.

Registration of TCA within ext_tables.php now finally stops working and code to resolve dynamicConfigFile option from TCA has been removed. Extensions still relying on this will fail.

Affected Installations

Instances which use one of the methods above or use one of the removed options.


For DocumentTemplate->JScodeLibArray use PageRenderer instead.

If the option $TYPO3_CONF_VARS[SYS][displayErrors] is set to "2" use "-1" instead.

All table definitions should be moved to <your_extension>/Configuration/TCA/<table_name>
