This version integrates Aloha Editor, a rising star on the wysiwyg editor scene. Unlike other established editors like TinyMCE, it makes the content editable inline, rather than using an iframe, which means that all the theme styles are preserved.

Also, unlike the rich-text editors previously integrated into Front-end Editor, Aloha is being developed by a whole bunch of contributors and is also backed by Gentics, the company that originally wrote and subsequently open-sourced it.

Jotschi, one of the Aloha developers, was working on a similar WordPress plugin; it just made sense for the two of us to combine our efforts. This release wouldn’t have happened without his help.

This is just the beginning. We have a lot of ideas related to Aloha Editor that we haven’t implemented yet. So, try it out and let us know what you think.
