This is a maintenance update to fix a number of bugs reported since the last update, and adds improvments to the handling of the <figure> and <figcaption> tags as an alternative method for creating image captions.

Figure and FigCaption improvements

The <figure> and <figcaption> tags provided a way for content creators to display captions on images and other media, and has been available as an alternative caption option in JCE by applying the Figure option from the Format list to a selected image. Doing so would wrap the image in a <figure> tag, with an associated <figcaption> tag for the image caption. This caption content was limited to single line text (although some formatting, like bold, underline, classes etc, could be applied), but this has now been improved to allow for block level formatting, eg: Heading1, Heading2, Paragraph etc. and multi-line text.

The <figure> and <figcaption> tags can be removed from the image by toggling the Figure option again in the Format list.

This update fixes a number of bugs reported since the last release, and adds a few new features and improvements, including:

  • The JCE File Browser is now available in "Repeatable" or "Sub Form" Media Fields. This does not include the ability to drag & drop upload into the media field itself, as is possible with non-repetable media fields.
  • It is now possible to re-apply the last action to a new selection using the CTRL + ALT + Z keyboard shortcut. For example, if you apply a style from the Styles list to a selection, you can then make a new selection and re-apply the style using the keyboard shortcut, without having to re-select the style from the Styles list.

This update fixes a number of bugs reported since the last release, and adds a few new features and improvements.

New features include options to set Startup Content for the editor, Media Previews of <video> and <audio> content, and webp support in the Image Editor and Create Thumbnail tools (which are also now available in the File Manager and File Browser). We've also added the option to set “quotes” on a selection using CTRL + SHIFT + ". When using a German language pack, CTRL + SHIFT + 2 will result in „quote“.

Video parameters - autoplay, loop, controls etc. - are now passed to MediaBox when creating a popup in the Media Manager, and embedding Youtube and Vimeo videos using a pasted in URL or the Quick Media input will now use relevant options set in the Media Manager parameters.

JCE Pro is also currently being tested on PHP 8, with no major issues found in JCE Pro 2.9.2.
