Adds the legacy form extension from TYPO3 CMS 7 LTS to TYPO3 CMS 8 LTS.

The functionality was part of TYPO3, until TYPO3 CMS 7 LTS, and moved into its own extension, receiving its own public repository.

The new form extension deliverd with TYPO3 CMS 8 LTS substitutes this extension and form_legacy is available to achieve backwards compatibility when upgrading instances from core version 7 to 8.


The latest version can be installed via TER ( or via composer by adding ''composer require friendsoftypo3/form-legacy'' in a TYPO3 CMS 8 installation.
