XWiki 8.1

  • Continue CKEditor work. The goal is to be ready to replace the GWT WYSIWYG by the CKEditor integration before the end of 8.1 and bundle it in 8.1. The default would still be the GWT one but a configuration option would allow to make CK the default + it should be possible to have both editors available for testing. - Marius
