Code snippets: You can now save your favourite code snippets for reuse. The code-library bar appears alongside the editor, on the right. if you're pleased with the piece you're editing and would like to reuse the style again, just save it to the library, with some handy title.
When needed, drag and drop the snippet onto the editor.
You can add up to 40 snippets to the library.
Backup your Snippet Library: You can now back-up and restore the library of your favourite code snippets. ( So far, there have been no complaints of misbehaving snippets library, but it looked like a good feature to have. )
Changed editor-history interface: wySUwyg History now opens as a separate dialog.
Help pop-ups: Most wySUwyg features now provide in-place Help. For instance, there's a Help menu at the top of the Drag&Drop sidebar.
wySUwyg now has a new version of Xinha editor embedded. Here are few changes you'll instantly notice:
Background styles are applied to the whole of editor area
All Color Pickers are now inline
Editor Height: Editor now expands to maximum possible height which is calculated according to your browser's current size.
Boxes - Image Background The 'insert box' plugin now has an option to add image backgrounds to Box elements
Boxes -Display style options If for some reason you don't want a block display, you can now choose.
Boxes -Text colour and alignment Choose if the matter inside a box aligns left/right or justified, and the text colour.
Box re-sizing: A slider based interface to reside boxes for an exact fit.
Image Drag drop to sidebar on Linux too: Changed the photoblogging sidebar's image drop code completely to enable it to work properly on Linux.
Quickly convert links to 'open in new window': Right Clicking on a link will show a new menu item 'Make Popping Link'. It will add code to make that link open in new window.
Easily hide the style panels Double-clicking on the style panel now hides it.
Better Editor tab management.
Some items removed from the editor's right-click menu (Like 'Paragraphs' which wouldn't work on sites like SU. )
Filters added for some unnecessary code generated by the browser when adding box elements
The initial preferences is set so that the windowed mode editor does not remain 'always on top'. In the newer versions of Firefox, this was causing popup elements like colour picker to be hidden.
