Important update: Sunday, February 3rd. The
stablechannel of Tiny Cloud will remain on the version 4 branch. To move to TinyMCE 5, it is now necessary to explicitly declare the version in the init script. The post below is updated to reflect this change.
TinyMCE version 4 will be automatically upgraded to version 5 on February 4, 2019, at 2pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8). As we prepare to launch TinyMCE 5 through cloud and self-hosted channels, developers wanting to deliver the benefits of version 5 to their users will need to explicitly declare the version in the editor init. We explain how to do this below.
TinyMCE 5, which is currently a release candidate, brings improvements to your rich text editing experience and some API changes. We are giving you advanced notice of this change so you can be prepared.
What is happening, and when?
