What does a version change mean for TinyMCE?

To ensure predictability and consistency for developers, TinyMCE follows Semantic Versioning:

TinyMCE version changes

Major releases (like TinyMCE 7.0) provide an opportunity to improve the codebase, which also comes with some breaking changes, and may require additional steps to upgrade.

Minor releases (like TinyMCE 7.2) introduce new features and bug fixes, and are backwards compatible

Patches (like TinyMCE 7.2.1) introduce bug fixes, and are backwards compatible

 

[UPDATES] Tiny 7.2 Enhancements

TinyMCE 7.2 includes a number of enhancements and improvements. The most notable ones are:

  • Accessibility - Added persistent visible labels for Find and Replace.

  • Insert / Edit Image - Improved slider focus during image editing so directional arrow keyboard keys can be used as slider input.

  • Tables - Editor will now intelligently merge spans when inserting into table cells.

  • PowerPaste - By default, PowerPaste turns plain text URLs into anchor tag hyperlinks. This update turns that subfeature into a configurable option that can be disabled.

  • Revision History - Large, complex documents with many revisions can take longer to load. To address this, you can now configure the feature to serve up revision titles only and then fetch that content when the revision is selected.

[UPDATES] Tiny 7.2 bug fixes

TinyMCE 7.2 also carries 10 bug fixes which are described in detail in the Changelog.
