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?
On February 4, 2019, at 2 pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8), TinyMCE 5 will be deployed to the cloud stable channel. This means that if you are running TinyMCE from the stable channel it will automatically be upgraded from version 4 to version 5.
How do I know if I am running TinyMCE from the stable channel?
If your script tag contains “
/stable/” without a reference to a version number. For example:
What changes in TinyMCE 5 could potentially affect me?
Most users will not have any issues with the upgrade from TinyMCE 4 to TinyMCE 5. However, we recommend that you test out the TinyMCE 5 Beta channel before February 4, 2019, particularly if any of the below applies to your current integration:
- You have built custom dialogs
- You utilize the Inlite Theme (sometimes known as the distraction free mode)
- You have extended TinyMCE UI components
Read the TinyMCE 5 Beta documentation for more information.
So what should I do next?
Try out TinyMCE 5 before February 4, 2019:
- Create a test environment of your existing application
- Use the following script tag in your test environment:
- Explore, experience and enjoy TinyMCE 5!
What if I want to stay on version 4 or I have an issue with TinyMCE 5 Beta that can’t be resolved before February 4, 2019?
You can manually specify the version of TinyMCE in your script tag on your production server:
If needed, you can also remain on a specific release of TinyMCE 4 (including minor and dot releases).
And when you are ready to upgrade to TinyMCE 5? Simply remove the version number.
Change your script tag to
stable anytime after February 4, 2019, to get access to TinyMCE 5 and continued automatic upgrades.
