If you appreciate what the Tesseract project does for you, consider donating to it.
All base extensions of Tesseract are now available in the TER in versions which are compatible with TYPO3 CMS 8.
This new release is a pure compatibility release, with no new features, nor major changes. A few glitches remain, which will be ironed out in future releases, where TYPO3 CMS 7 compatibility will be dropped.
Apart from that, the project has been moved to GitHub, so look out for the repositories and the bug tracker at https://github.com/Tesseract-TYPO3.
