This version uses an even better WYSIWYG editor, namely CLEditor:

rich editing with CLEditor

CLEditor is built on top of jQuery, so it’s more light-weight. Also, it has better controls and is easier to extend. nicEdit hasn’t been updated in 2 years.

The localization files are now split in two: CLEditor strings and plugin strings.

This release also includes a number of bugfixes:

  • fixed encoding issues with paragraph editing
  • fixed image fields handling
  • fixed typo which made spinner not show
  • check ‘edit_theme_options’ capability instead of ‘edit_themes’

Also take a look at the new plugin wiki.
