If you're using any of the Typo 6.0 series, you really should upgrade to
6.0.3 as it fixes a lot of AJAX related bugs. Having a good unit tests
coverage is not always enough, and human test are always worth spending
the time we didn't have. Hopefully, Fabiano Francesconi has been doing a
great work reporting bugs he was falling on tonight while we were fixing

The culprit is an outdated, buggy Rails Prototype Legacy Helper plugin.
This plugin gathers all the fancy AJAX helpers that were removed from
Rails 3. We probably should have done some unobtrusive Javascript
instead of using that one, but... Typo 6.0 would probably had never been
released at all.

As usual, you can download Typo at or

A few things fixed by Typo 6.0.3:
* Sidebar settings being saved since nothing seemed to happen and the
sidebar form would eventually look dead afterwards.
* Comments preview breaking on most legacy themes, including built in
Typographic, Scribbish, Dirtylicious and Standard Issue.
* Category drag and drop reorder would not do anything.
* Admin content filtering would render an error.

All the best,
Your Typo team
