Ephox Corp. introduced the latest release of its EditLive! rich text editor software, which the company says makes it easier for developers to create compelling content and embed social media within custom applications and Web-based and social media platforms.

The ninth release adds 20 new and improved features, including the display and editing of HTML5 elements, the use of oEmbed for social media content and support for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, according to Andrew Roberts, CEO of Ephox.

Enterprise developers and independent software vendors can use EditLive!'s libraries to embed the "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" editor within content applications, the company says. In addition, users of IBM Connections, IBM Web Content Manager and OpenText Web Experience Management can benefit from EditLive! 9 through pre-built, out-of-box integrations.

The latest release is a “significant improvement” over open source alternatives, Ephox says, because developers can now enhance the WYSIWYG editing experience via a new in-context editor API; support HTML5 and WCAG 2.0 guidelines with the content produced by EditLive!; tailor the look and feel with more customization options; and increase performance without the need to eliminate dialogs, turn off spell check as-you-type or remove half a dozen features to improve speed.

Other features include the ability to embed social media from sites such as YouTube, SlideShare, Instagram and Google Maps; and see how content will appear on mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones.

The release is available for download in a 30-day trial on ephox.com.
