    [+FEATURE] Fluid(ViewHelpers): Added BE view helpers be.container, be.buttons.csh, be.buttons.icon, be.menus.actionMenu, be.pageInfo & be.tableList. NOTE: BE view helpers are still experimental and subject of change!
    [+FEATURE] Fluid(ViewHelpers): TranslateViewHelper now fully works in BE mode and respects BE user language. This relates to #3292
    [~BUGFIX] Fluid(ViewHelpers): Email addresses are now prepend with "mailto:" in view helper (BE mode)
    [+TASK] Fluid(ViewHelpers): uri.resource view helper now prepends "../" to relative URIs in BE mode
    [~BUGFIX] Fluid(Tests): Fixed some unit tests so that they run green. We still need more tests and a way to simulate FE mode from phpunit.

    [-TASK] Fluid: R*****@package/@subpackage annotations from all Fluid classes. They have already been removed in FLOW3 packages in r2813.

    [+BUGFIX] Fluid: Replaced SplObjectStorage by Tx_Extbase_Persistence_ObjectStorage to be PHP 5.2-compatible (which ships with a broken implementation of SplObjectStorage)
    [!!!][~TASK] Fluid (Core): Renamed ConditionViewHelper and TagBasedViewHelper to Abstract*ViewHelper as per CGL. (backported from Fluid package r4840). To be backwards-compatible, TagBasedViewHelper.php still exists and will write an entry to TYPO3s deprecation log if used. Please adapt your custom ViewHelpers and inherit from AbstractTagBasedViewHelper instead of TagBasedViewHelper. This resolves #8834
    [~TASK] Fluid: Marked vfs unit tests to be skipped, as vfs is not part of v4 (yet)
