  • The update to the editor comes with a backward-incompatible change, that causes the CSS class for the inner editor window to be changed from redactor-editor to redactor-layer. Plugin developers providing custom element styling inside the editor window may need to adjust their CSS selectors.


    JavaScript-based interaction with the editor is not affected, the built-in method core.editor() has been adjusted to reflect this change.
