commit 38ebcedd944471b83d9293b648264fd3e65634f1
Author: Bastian Waidelich <*****@typo3.org>

    Fluid:
    * Changes backported from FLOW3:
      * major cleanup and refactoring of core and view helper classes & comments
      * added validation for boolean arguments in AbstractViewHelper
      * added initialize-method to AbstractViewHelper, that is called before render(). This was especially needed for tagbased viewhelpers.
      * renderChildren() now directly calls evaluateChildNodes() on the respective view helper node allowing us to render objects/arrays.
      * improved boolean type conversion for arguments in ViewHelperNode.
      * added TagBuilder class, re-wrote all tag based view helpers to use it (see form view helpers for some examples)
      * ViewHelperArguments collection got a new method "hasArgument()" that returns TRUE when the specified argument exists and is not NULL
    * tx_fluid changes:
      * Improved fake object factory. Now objects are injected to subclasses and implementations of the specified classes/interfaces.
      * cleaned up and tweaked view helpers. Removed Parsefunc, Stdwrap and TypoScript view helpers for now. Added CObject, If/Then/Else, EmailLink, Crop, Currency, Debug, HTML, Nl2br, Image view helpers. Thanks to Sebastian Böttger, Christopher Hlubek, Niels Pardon, Andreas Pattynama for the help!
    * Note: Unit tests not fully backported yet.

    Fluid:
    * updated currency, date, number and printf view helpers to use tag contents as their main input as discussed in the mailing lists. This will most probably break your existing fluid templates (again) - but, hey, thats bleeding edge.

    Fluid:
    * Backported major changes from Fluid v5 to Fluid v4
    * !!! Many of these changes are not backwards-compatible! Please read this if you have written custom ViewHelpers!
    * Introduced Shorthand Syntax for calling ViewHelpers
    * Core:
    ** Lots of internal cleanup and refactorings.
    ** !!! Complete restructuring into subpackages.
    * ViewHelpers:
    ** !!! The base classes of ViewHelpers changed to Tx_Fluid_Core_ViewHelper_AbstractViewHelper and Tx_Fluid_Core_ViewHelper_TagBasedViewHelper. Please adjust your ViewHelpers!
    ** !!! $this->variableContainer has been renamed to $this->templateVariableContainer
    ** !!! the view is not in $this->variableContainer anymore. Currently there is no way to fetch the View from a ViewHelper.
    ** Introduced a new $this->controllerContext containing the context variables of the controller
    ** !!! The request can be now found in $this->controllerContext->getRequest()
    ** !!! The URIHelper has been renamed to URIBuilder and can be now found in $this->controllerContext->getURIBuilder()
    ** Introduced a new ViewHelperVariableContainer, available in $this->viewHelperVariableContainer to pass data between ViewHelpers. Should only be needed in very rare cases.
    ** !!! Removed <f:format.htmlEscape> ViewHelper! Please remove these declarations in your template! Escaping of object accessors is now automatically done, see next point.
    * !!! ObjectAccessors {...} are now automatically HTMLspecialChar'd if not used as an argument to a ViewHelper. This is done using a new ObjectAccessorPostProcessor. Lateron, this will be made configurable.

commit ed19fe9e4a6d2e91c594784adea24aa82064dd47
Author: Sebastian Kurfürst <*****@typo3.org>

    Fluid in v5 and v4 are now synchronized again!
    
    [+FEATURE] Fluid: The TemplateVariableContainer now provides a method to retrieve all variables.
    [~TASK] Fluid (Core): Introduced a RenderingContextInterface to more cleanly decouple Fluid's rendering context from the TypoScript rendering context. Note that view helpers (and other code) should now refer to that interface instead of the concrete Fluid implementation!
    [!!!][+BUGFIX] Fluid (Core): Refactored all Condition-ViewHelpers like f:if, f:security.if* to use a newly created base class F3\Fluid\Core\ViewHelper\ConditionViewHelper. This greatly simplifies the implementation of custom conditions. However, THIS IS A BREAKING CHANGE in case you copied the f:if ViewHelper to create a custom condition ViewHelper, as the internal workings changed. Please check the new f:if ViewHelper to see how to adjust your ViewHelper -- you basically just have to throw away a lot of code. Resolves #8824.
    [!!!][-API] Fluid (TemplateView): Removed renderSection() and renderWithLayout() from public API in Tx_Fluid_View_TemplateView, as this should only be called from inside Fluid.
    [!!!][TASK] Fluid (ViewHelpers): the <f:section />-ViewHelper now does NOT render itself anymore when encountered in a normal template. Example: Before the change, the template "before <f:section name='...'> middle </f:section> after" was rendered as "before middle after", but now it is only rendered as "before after". Although this is a breaking change, it is quite unlikely that anybody relied on this behavior, as it was inconsistent beforehand.
    [TASK] Fluid (TemplateView): Major refactoring of the layout, partial and section rendering mechanism. This also induces a speedup as retundant rendering is eliminated.
    [+FEATURE] Fluid (ViewHelpers): The <f:render>-ViewHelper can be now used to render sections in the same partial and template. In these cases, all arguments need to be specified explicitely. Additionally, it can now be used to render a section recursively.
    [~TASK] Fluid (Core): Removed some non-API-methods which were never called.

    [FEATURE] CurrencyViewhelper can prepend the currency sign
    
    With the flag $prependCurrency = TRUE the currency sign can be prepended
    instead of appended (e.g. CHF 123.00)
    The additional parameter $separateCurrency determines whether the currency
    sign should be separated by a space (e.g. $123.00).
