We’ve been working hard on the TinyMCE 4.2 release with our new colleagues at TinyMCE. This major release includes a new modern skin. In addition, we are proud to present a brand new feature yet to be seen in open source WYSIWYG editors: built in image editing tools.
Built in image editing tools. The Image Tools plugin will allow you to resize, crop and apply filters to images in your content all within TinyMCE. Please note that some integration is required to fully take advantage of this feature. As part of the Image Tools plugin, we added an Upload API to handle uploading the changed files. If you wish to learn more about the TinyMCE Image Tools, vist our blog post that describes this new feature in depth.
New modern skin. We’ve also created a new default skin that provides TinyMCE with a more modern look and feel. With the skin and updates to the UI that allows for inline toolboars, we have also made incremental improvements to our touch support, although more work to better support mobile devices is still to come.
Documentation update. While not specitifc to the 4.2 release, you will begin to see a series of improvements to our product documentation. We have received numerous suggestions on how our documentation could be improved and we are working to make that happen.
