For your authentication issue, are you sure your database is up to  
date ? Latest Typo version introduces roles for users and DB needs to  
be migrated using rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=your_environment.

Adding a new controller is not easy as it used to be :
– Add the controller in app/controllers/admin
– Add the corresponding views into app/controllers/admin/yourcontroller
– Add a new module in config/initializers/access_control.rb

And you're done.
