Breaking: #76108 - Replace ExtJS category tree with D3 and SVG

See Issue #76108


Backend ExtJS category tree has been replaced with one based on D3.js and SVG. The js file typo3/sysext/backend/Resources/Public/JavaScript/tree.js has been removed.

The expanded/collapsed state will not be saved to the backend user settings any more. It was not used in the core, as all category trees have setting expandAll set to true . It also polluted backend user settings with tons of data without giving much usability gain.


Any JS code referencing ExtJS component TYPO3.Components.Tree or its sub-components (like TYPO3.Components.Tree.StandardTree ) will no longer work.

Affected Installations

All installations having extensions which modify the TYPO3.Components.Tree (implemented in typo3/sysext/backend/Resources/Public/JavaScript/tree.js ) component, or rely on the file being present.


Migration of the JS code to the new SvgTree component is recommended.
