  • Improved drawer support and demo content for drawers.
  • Added support for CSS 'float' for images.
  • Configurable filtering with whitelists and blacklists which significantly speeds up save time on IE.

  • BeforeUnload handler added which controls all form fields.
  • A lot of Plone fixes and enhancements.

What is Kupu?

Kupu is a client-side WYSIWYG editor that is written entirely in JavaScript, works on Internet Explorer as well as Mozilla based browsers and can be integrated into any type of webserver. It has a clean, object-oriented codebase and a flexible plugin API. It supports client-side cleanup (e.g. Word markup) and returns well-formed XML (very clean HTML that can be parsed easily on the server).
