JCE Pro 2.6.0 has been released!
This release marks a milestone in the development of JCE with the integration of the main JCE Plugins with the JCE Editor in a single extension package.
Apart from this, there are a number of important changes and great new features.
The editor toolbar has had a minor makeover, with a slight increase in button size and a few colour changes, while retaining a familiar look.
The upload dialog showing a cleaner interface with easier file renaming via an input box for each item.
The Source Code and Preview views have been moved to tabbed windows, activated from the tabs above the editor toolbar.
Image editing everywhere
And yes, that includes the File Browser available from the media fields in the Joomla Article Manager Images and Links tab!
Image Editor improvements
The usual Resize, Crop and Rotate transforms are also available.
Resizing images on upload can now create new images of different sizes, applied to all images in the upload queue, or from sizes set for individual images.
The first set of values are applied to the original image, with additional values creating a resized version of the original, with the values appended to the file name, eg: sparrow.jpg would become sparrow_640_480.jpg when resized to 640 x 480.
Each resize option can also have a suffix added, for easier identification of the file. Perfect for creating images for responsive design...
The new Responsive tab in the Image Manager Extended makes creating true responsive images with the srcset attribute super easy. Set the device pixel ratio, reference width and re-order with drag & drop.
Downloadable files with the File Manager
Embed files with the File Manager
Markdown support has been added to the editor and can be enabled by checking the Markdown option in Editor Profiles -> Features & Layout
Markdown support includes Headings, bold, italic, lists, strikethrough, code, blockquote and images.
