An upgrade of the CKEditor text editor, used in a variety of places in Fronter to produce content, will be released on Tuesday March 18. The upgrade consists of upgrading CKEditor to version 4.3.2. and is mainly focussed around improving support for IE11 and tablet devices as well as significant backend improvements.
In the new version, there will be visible changes to the look and feel. We will get a new skin. We also will merge the icons for "Insert and Upload Media", "Insert Sound" and "Insert Embed content" into one icon for inserting media.
The equation and spell checker plugins are no longer supported by CKEditor. The equation editor will still be available in the upgraded editor but in its old version, with known issues especially on new Java RTEs. The spell checker will now disappear for a short period of time, but for the long term, we are preparing proper replacements for both of these plug-ins.
Coming up: in the near future, the editor will get some further updates, including a toggle button making it possible to switch between the two available editor versions, "Child" and full HTML. We are also working on improving the Insert Media popup, both in terms of look and feel and embedding capabilities.
