Deprecation: #94741 - Register SoftReference parsers via DI

See Issue #94741

Description

The former way of registering soft reference parsers in the global array $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['GLOBAL']['softRefParser'] has been marked as deprecated.

Impact

Registering soft reference parsers in the global array will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected Installations

All installations, that register user-defined soft reference parsers in the global array $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['GLOBAL']['softRefParser'].

Migration

Use the new way of registering soft reference parsers by dependency injection in the corresponding Configuration/Services.(yaml|php) file of your extension.

Before:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['GLOBAL']['softRefParser']['your_key'] = \VENDOR\Extension\SoftReference\YourSoftReferenceParser::class;

After:

VENDOR\Extension\SoftReference\YourSoftReferenceParser:
  tags:
    - name: softreference.parser
      parserKey: your_key

Note

If a parser is registered in both ways with the same key, the registration in the global array takes precedence to ensure backwards-compatibility.

To ensure compatibility with TYPO3 v10-v12, it is recommended to register both places at the same time.
