New Html Editor

As of 6.15 Content Studio uses CKEditor as the default editor, deprecating TinyMCE from service. The switch improves both stability for editors, and new features, here are a few:

  • Drag’n dropping images directly into the editor.
  • Drag images around inside text
  • Double click to edit images
  • Double click to edit links
  • Field expands on select (for faster scrolling through forms)

The editor is fully backward compatible, and more new features will be introduced in upcoming releases.

Updates to steps in Content Editor

The standard steps “Settings” and “Access” have been replaced by icons to save space. Additionally, Xtra data has been re-implemented, and now allows the editor manually enable or disable entire X-data steps.

Editors can now enable, and disable X-data as needed (using the new x-data feature requires a minor change to existing applications). See the full X-data documentation.

Media Selector input type

A brand new input type for selecting and uploading any kind of file is now available. The Media Selector combines features from both Content Selector and the Image selector to provide a flexible way of uploading and selecting files:

Fully replicated sessions

Warning

Session replication is an experimental feature.

Web sessions (i.e. logins) can now be fully replicated. This means that users will never loose their session if a server is shut down or fails while running an XP cluster. As of 6.15 sticky-session load balancer configuration is optional.
