This update fixes a number of issues reported since the last update, and adds a few new features. In addition, various updates have been made to improve support for Joomla 4 Beta.

Simplified Dialogs

A new Basic Dialog option has been added for the Link, Image Manager and Media Manager buttons, which replaces the standard dialog window with a stripped down version, containing only a URL field, as well as a Text field for the Link version, and a Description field (for the alt attribute) for the Image Manager. This option is disabled by default. A further related option enables a File Browser in the URL field for the Image Manager and Media Manager.

Template List Thumbnails

When createing Template List items in the Template Manager parameters, you can now set a thumbnail image to use for the Template List dropdown, to give an indication of what HTML content will be inserted by the item. Alternatively, any image with the same name and in the same folder as the template item html file, will be used instead.

This update fixes a number of issues reported since the last update, and includes a few small additions and changes.

Drag & drop embed of files

Support for drag & drop upload and insert of various file types - pdf, docx, etc. - has been improved to allow these files to be embedded into content, in a similar way as can be acheived using the File Manager dialog.

To do this, the new Format option in the File Manager parameters must be set to Iframe, and an Embed Width and Embed Height value should be set. To embed Office type files - doc, docx, xls, xlsx etc. - the Open Width option should also be set, as these file types will require an external service to process and display them.

Then, just drag and drop the file into the editor to upload and embed it.

This update to JCE MediaBox fixes a few issues reported since the last update.

This release also drops fallback video support, where an Adobe Flash based video player was used to play mp4 and mp3 files on older browsers that do not support the <video> and <audio> tags. Consequently, support for flv and f4v video types has also been removed.
