JCE 2.5.0 released

Posted in Latest News

UPDATE

JCE 2.5.1 has been released to fix a bug where some elements, eg: <em>, <i> were removed if they had no attributes.

JCE 2.5.0 "Stable" has been released. This update includes a number of changes and bug fixes. Thank you to everyone who tested the Beta and Release Candidate versions.

Changes to core file packaging

Some time ago we introduced a method to combine and compress the editor's javascript and css files, resulting in a single javascript or css file for the browser to download. This generally results in improved load performance, as the browser only has to download one file.

Some users have found, and reported, that for some reason or other, this feature does not work on their site, or they choose not to use it. We have therefore done some of this combining when the extension is packaged, resulting in fewer javascript and css files in the extension, and therefore fewer files to load by the editor and add-ons.

Enabling the compression options will still combine these files into a single javascript and css file.

New Features 

Three new features have been added in this release:

Form Elements for Custom Styles

It is now possible to create a Custom Style with a form, input, button, fieldset or legend tag.

Total Files and Total File Size limits

You can set the total number of files the File Directory Path (and its subfolders) can contain, as well as the total size of this folder in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Filesystem. This restriction is applied when the user uploads a file.

total filestotal file size

"Mixed" Doctype

A "Mixed" Doctype option is available in the Editor Global Configuration and is the default setting on new installs. This option sets the HTML schema the editor uses to included HTML4 and HTML5 elements and attributes.

JCE 2.4.6 released

Posted in Latest News

This is a maintenace release to fix some issues reported since the release of 2.4.6, as well as a possible minor vulnerability in the JCE Add-ons Installer.

Possible Vulnerability in JCE Add-ons Installer

We have been informed of a possible vulnerability that may exist in the JCE Add-ons installer, that may give someone with access to the Joomla Administration and the JCE Installer the ability to upload a file to the Joomla tmp folder that is not a JCE Add-on. This update fixes this issue.

In addition to the above fix, you should always ensure that access to the Joomla Administration of your site, and the JCE Installer, is only ever given to trusted individuals.

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.
