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.

File Manager Embed Parameters 

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