    <h1>HTMLArea-3.0-rc1 release notes</h1>

    <p>This release was compiled on Mar  1, 2004 [19:37] GMT.</p>

    <h2>3.0-rc1</h2>

    <p>Changes since 3.0-Beta:</p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        <b>New plugins</b>
        <ul>
          <li>
            ContextMenu plugin (provides a nice context menu with common
            operations, including table ops, link ops, etc.)
          </li>
          <li>
            CSS plugin (provides an easy way to insert/change CSS classes)
          </li>
          <li>
            FullPage plugin (allows HTMLArea to edit a whole HTML file,
            not only the content within &lt;body&gt;.)
          </li>
        </ul>
      </li>
      <li>
        <b>Changes in the SpellChecker plugin</b>
        <ul>
          <li>
            Many bugfixes: now it works ;-)  Fully Unicode-safe.
          </li>
          <li>
            Speed and bandwidth optimization: reports the list of
            suggestions only once for each mispelled word; this helps
            in cases where you have, for instance, the word “HTMLArea”
            in 10 places all over the document; the list of
            suggestions for it--which is kind of huge--will only be
            included <em>once</em>.
          </li>
          <li>
            User interface improvements: the highlighted word will
            remain in view; in cases where it's normally outside, the
            window will be scrolled to it.
          </li>
          <li>
            Added a "Revert" button for those that change their minds ;-)
          </li>
          <li>
            Added a "Info" button which reports information about the
            document, retrieved by the server-side spell checker:
            total number of words, total number of mispelled words,
            number of suggestions made, spell check time, etc.  More
            can be easily added.  <span class="fixme">FIXME: this part
            is not yet internationalized.</span>
          </li>
          <li>
            The server-side spell checker now uses XML::DOM instead of
            HTML::Parser, which means that it will be unable to parse
            “tag-soup” HTML.  It needs valid code.  Usually HTMLArea
            generates valid code, but on rare occasions it might fail
            and the spell checker will report a gross error message.
            This gonna have to be fixed, but instead of making the
            spell checker accept invalid HTML I prefer to make
            HTMLArea generate valid code, so changes are to be done in
            other places ;-)
          </li>
        </ul>
      </li>
      <li>
        <b>Changes in the core editor</b>
        <ul>
          <li>
            Easier to setup: you only need to load
            <tt>htmlarea.js</tt>; other scripts will be loaded
            automatically.  <a href="reference.html">Documentation</a>
            and <a href="examples/">examples</a> updated.
          </li>
          <li>
            Better plugin support (they register information about
            themselves with the editor; can register event handlers for
            the editor, etc.)
          </li>
          <li>
            New about box; check it out, it's cool ;-)
          </li>
          <li>
            Word cleaner (can be enabled to automatically kill Word crap
            on paste (see Config.killWordOnPaste); otherwise accessible by
            pressing CTRL-0 in the editor; a toolbar button will come up
            soon)
          </li>
          <li>
            Image preview in "insert image" dialog.  Also allows
            modification of current image, if selected.
          </li>
          <li>
            New "insert link" dialog, allows target and title
            specification, allows editing links.
          </li>
          <li>
            Implemented support for text direction (left-to-right or
            right-to-left).
          </li>
          <li>
            Lots of bug fixes!  ... and more, I guess ;-) an
            automatically generated <a href="ChangeLog">change log</a>
            is now available.
          </li>
        </ul>
      </li>
    </ul>

    <p>I don't have the power to go through the <a
href="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=525656&group_id=69750&func=browse">bug
system</a> at SourceForge
    now.  Some of the bugs reported there may be fixed; I'll update
    their status, some other time.  If you reported bugs there and now
    find them to be fixed, please let me know.</p>
