Breaking: #73516 - GeneralUtility::getFileAbsFileName allows for typo3/ maindir specific paths¶
The PHP method
GeneralUtility::getFileAbsFileName used for resolving absolute paths has the option removed to only
resolve relative paths or paths to the typo3/ main directory.
The two removed parameters are not evaluated anymore, thus always resolving any path, and additionally
always relative to the
PATH_site variable (the installations' base directory).
Any installation with an extension using the removed options to fetch data relative to the typo3/ directory.
EXT: syntax everywhere to resolve files within extension directories. If the path relative to the
typo3/ main directory is explicitly needed, the constant
TYPO3_mainDir can be used as a prefix to the file.
