Happy New Year Squiz!

As ever very insightful information and lots of good work in 2018. Also sad new this will be the last monthly newsletter as I have loved the updates. Hopefully product updates will continue.

Couple of things caught my eye were:

  • New deprecations page that I wasn’t aware of. It states the classic WYSIWYG editor will be deprecated in Matrix 6. Is there going to be a free replacement?
  • Is the marketplace going to be open to developers outside Squiz?
  • Is the marketplace going to be offering paid model?

Yes, the Viper WYSIWYG we use in Edit+ will be the default WYSIWYG instead.

That’s the plan eventually, but probably not for a while. Don’t have more details on this atm though.

We may have some items in there that are subscription or fee based, but those details haven’t been decided yet either.

Hi Bart,

Thanks for the feedback.

Can’t wait to try Matrix 6 when it is released.
