What is the Official Status of HTMLArea 3.0? Can't Post

Hi,

I was doing some extensive integrating of HTMLArea into a CMS project I was working on, and anxious for a stable 3.0 release.

However, today I received the IT newsletter stating that HTMLArea is now a directory of WYSIWYG editors. That is cool, but has the HTMLArea project been dumped? Is mishoo continuing things on his own?

See http://xinha.gogo.co.nz/cgi-bin/trac.cgi for the further development of Htmlarea.

Kind regards Fred Stuurman

The official status is that version 3 is discontinued and retired. There won't be any further development on htmlarea 3 under the name "htmlarea".

For anyone who wants to, though, they can take the code and create their own editor based on it and we'd be happy to give you a link in the directory. We're not going to endorse any one editor over another though and I'd encourage everybody to check out all your options before making a final choice.

And as far as I know Mishoo isn't planning on releasing his own editor anytime soon, but if he did we'd of course link to him so you'd know.

As for for us, we're still deciding if we're going to write a new editor from scratch or use one from the directory for our own software.

We figure there's something like 100 browser based wysiwyg editors out there now (over 50 are listed in the directory so far) so it's pretty competitive and there are a lot of choices.

Mihai Bazon (a.k.a. Mishoo) is continuing what was known as HTMLarea:

http://www.dynarch.com/projects/htmlarea/

I quote their site:

Our position on this is that the editor will keep going; we are actually making quite some progress in its development, but only in house at this time. We are still planning to release version 3.0, quite possibly under a different name (so it might actually be a 1.0) but still free, at least for the core editor--some plugins might be released under a commercial license. We can't provide explicit deadlines, so please bear with us.



for the moderators: I am only linking this directly since you are not allowing any posts in the directory under the name of HTMLarea.
