An upgrade of the CKEditor text editor, used in a variety of places in Fronter to produce content, will be released soon. The upgrade consists of upgrading CKEditor to version 4.3.2. and is mainly focussed around improving support for IE11 and tablet devices.
In the new version, there will be visible changes to the look and feel. We will get a new, more modern skin. The Child editor is replaced with a simple version of the full editor, and we will merge the icons for "Insert and Upload Media", "Insert Sound" and "Insert Embed content" to one icon.
The equation and spell checker plugins are no longer supported by CKEditor. The equation editor will still be available in the upgraded editor but in its old version, with known issues especially on new Java RTEs. The spell checker will disappear for a short period of time, but for the long term, we are preparing a second release where proper replacements for both these plug-ins will be introduced.
Update: the previously communicated release date is changed, and we will communicate the new one as soon as it becomes available.
