Breaking: #72497 - Removed recode support for Charset Conversion

See Issue #72497


The support for GNU-recode when converting from one charset to another has been dropped. The CharsetConverter now only supports mbstring. In case mbstring is not present a polyfill will kick in.


Setting $TYPO3_CONF_VARS[SYS][t3lib_cs_convMethod] = 'recode'; will have no effect anymore. Conversion is then done through the default TYPO3-internal conversion.

Affected Installations

Installations that have the option $TYPO3_CONF_VARS[SYS][t3lib_cs_convMethod] set to recode.


No migration.
