The 4.1 version of TinyMCE was just released, with some new features and fixes. This is an outtake of a few of the things new in 4.1, for more details and info, check the TinyMCE Forum news post. Please note, if you are using the CDN version, you need to update the url to load the 4.1 version.
One of the more noticable features is a new and updated color picker, this picker is used in various places in side tinymce, for text color, background color as well as table cell colors etc.
In the toolbar you now have the option to set custom colors, and clicking on “Custom…” pops up a more advanced color picker where you have more control over exactly what color you wish to set.
The colors are only saved for as long as you have that particular instance of TinyMCE running. To use this, add the “colorpicker” plugin to the plugins list.
There are also some new callbacks if you wish to override this behaviour and use a custom color picker.
Text pattern plugin
A new plugin with some neat features if you are used to Markdown type writing. It will allow you to type something like “**bold**” or “1. text” to make a text bold or an ordered list, this makes it easier to add formatting while typing. This is configurable as well, so you can set your own custom combinations.
Advanced table dialog tab
By request we have added an advanced tab to the table dialog for some extra more or less commonly used features.
So you can see the exact size of the image you are resizing, a neat little feature that we think ppl will have much use of.
