JCE 2.4.0 released

Posted in Latest News

After an extended beta and release candidate testing period, we are pleased to announce the release of JCE 2.4

This will be the last feature release of JCE 2, with subsequent releases dealing with bug fixes only. All future development effort will be concentrated on JCE 3. More information on JCE 3 will be published in the coming weeks.

Although this release is mainly focused on bug fixes, some notable changes in this release include:

Font, Format and Custom Style options moved

These options have been moved from the Editor Parameters / Typography section to their own tabs in Plugin Parameters

Profile Parameter Encryption

An option has been included in the Component options (click on the Options button in the JCE Control Panel) to enable encryption of Profile parameters using AES128. This may be desirable when installed JCE Add-ons (such as the Amazon S3 Filesystem add-on) use sensitive information (passwords etc.) stored in Profile Parameters. The parameter data is decrypted when the profile is exported, allowing for the transfer of profiles from one server to another.

Various improvements and bug fixes

As usual we have made every effort to fix as many issues reported as we could, most of these have been included and tested in previous beta and release candidate packages. If you encounter any new problems, or think that an issue you reported previously has not been addressed, please post a note in the forum.

Changelog

As usual a changelog is available containing a list of fixes and additions.

The end of JCE MediaBox?

Written by Ryan, Posted in Latest News

For some time now I have been considering ending development of JCE MediaBox. It is quite a popular extension, and has existed in one form or another for Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3 since at least 2008, initially  as JCE Utilities, then later as JCE MediaBox.

Despite this, it's development and maintenance are obviously time consuming, and take away from time that could be spent on the JCE Editor. Unlike JCE Editor, there are a few (perhaps better) alternatives, Yootheme WidgetKit and RocketTheme RokBox to name two, both free, actively developed, and supported by JCE Editor through add-ons.

A difficult decision awaits. Your comments, via twitter, would be welcome.

JCE 2.3.4.2 released

Posted in Latest News

This release includes a number of bug fixes, improvements to the JCE Updater, as well as improvements to the Custom Styles widget, and one new feature.

JCE Updater

First, we would like to thank Nicholas Dionysopoulos of Akeeba Backup for his help in fixing the JCE Updater and the use of some of his code from Akeeba Live Update to do this. Thank you too to those of you who patiently reported the issue and tested the changes. 

Block Element Trap

A new Enter Key option has been added to help with the "Block Element Trap" problem - where the cursor becomes trapped inside a nested block element, eg: a p inside a parent div, where every enter key press creates a new paragraph with no way to create a new div.

ALT+Enter will now move the cursor out of the nested block element, creating a new block element (paragraph, div) at the base level. See the video below for a better, visual explanation:

Custom Styles Widget Additions

The Custom Styles widget now includes a greatly expanded set of tags to use, separated into new categories - Section Elements, Grouping Elements and Text-Level Elements.
