The major new feature of Version 2.0 is the new Structured Editor.
This is very similar to the new structured editor in Rock's content
channels, but it does have a few differences since we have a few
additional features that are not available (nor do they make sense) for
the core editor.
We think this new editor will allow you and your staff to create
articles extremely fast. While Markdown is still faster if you are
familiar with it, we realize that not all your staff may want to learn
Markdown and prefer something closer to a WYSIWYG editor. While it's not
a perfect WYSIWYG, it's probably close enough that your users will feel
comfortable using it.
It's worth noting that the new editor will only be used for new books
that you create after installing version 2.0 of the plugin. Old books
will by default continue to use the legacy Markdown editor. If you edit
an existing book you can change the editor being used from Markdown to
Structured Editor. When you save it will confirm the change and then
convert all the existing articles. And by convert we mean you can use
the structured editor and existing content will be placed inside a
single Markdown block.
Since you convert a Structured Editor book into Markdown, you may
want to create a new temporary book and play with the new editor before
converting your existing books. This way you can get used to the new
editor before you convert.
This version also adds support for embedding YouTube and Vimeo videos
(as well as links to plain MP4 videos) into your articles. However, you
must use the new Structured Editor to enable this feature.
