MathType integrations release notes

MathType Integrations 8.8.2 - February 2024

What's fixed

  • This release solves an issue that caused the viewer to render some characters inserted in MathType equations incorrectly, creating unexpected errors.

MathType Integrations 8.8.1 - January 2024

This release fixes some bugs, adds a demo for handwriting-only mode, and a new way to serve our integrations that is more efficient and desirable than before.

New features

  • In the demo of the Generic integration, we have included a "Handwriting-only" mode for those customers interested in this functionality alone.

What's Improved

  • The viewer (WIRISplugin.js) had a configuration that required users to download dependencies and build the package every time we updated it. With the change performed, we will be able to build and upload the package to NPM with the rest of the viewer files, which will simplify the user flow when we upload the viewer.

What's fixed

  • We have fixed a bug that prevented our Froala and Generic Integration demos from properly setting the GUI parameters from the “advanced options" section.

  • Also, the MathType for CKEditor 5 PHP demo hosted in store.wiris.com does not ignore the configuration.ini file anymore.

  • Creating a new formula in "only handwriting mode” will not transition as the classic handwriting did.

  • Fixed an error that appeared when double-clicking an equation in CKEditor 4 when the parameters “wiriseditorsavemode” in the configuration.ini was set to “base64”.

MathType editor 7.22.0 - January 2024

New features

  • Added zh_hant (Traditional Chinese) localization.

What's fixed

  • Fixed some zh (Simplified Chinese) translation entries.

  • Display the correct error message when services are used without a license.

  • Avoid crashing when invalid values are used for the after attribute in a custom toolbar.

MathType integrations 8.8.0 - December 2023

This release fixes a couple of bugs related to the editor parameters, and it adds a handwriting-only mode, which is in the Generic Integration demo. Also, we have simplified the process of how users need to update the viewer.

New features

  • We have included a "Handwriting-only" mode in the demo of the Generic integration so the customers interested in this feature can test it.

What's Improved

  • The viewer (WIRISplugin.js) had a configuration that required users to download dependencies and build the package every time we updated it, thus creating a non-optimal user experience. 

    After this release, we will build and upload the package to NPM with the rest of the viewer files, which will simplify the user flow when we upload the viewer.

What's fixed

  • This release fixes a bug that prevented our Froala and Generic demos from adequately setting the GUI parameters from the "advanced options" section.

  • Also, we have fixed a bug that made MathType for CKEditor 5 PHP demo ignore the configuration.ini file. From now on, it will take the parameter configuration into account.

MathType for Oxygen XML Web Author v8.4.1 - December 2023

This release fixes an issue that made the rendering of formulae stop after some intensive usage of MathType for Oxygen Web Author.

What's fixed

We have fixed the issue that interrupted the rendering of formulae after some intensive usage of MathType for Oxygen Web Author.

MathType Integrations 8.7.1 - October 2023

Bug fixing release.

What's fixed

  • MathType for CKEditor Integration was doing an abnormal number of calls when using the Integration Services. The number of calls has been optimized to use fewer resources when using particular services.

  • The ChemType icon in the toolbar was blurry for TinyMCE5 and TinyMCE6 Integrations. This has been fixed.

MathType Integrations 8.7.0 - October 2023

Fixed some misbehaviors and unexpected errors that occurred in our different integrations when interacting with the formulas inserted in the editor.

What's fixed

  • Fixed a bug where the font and some font properties of the text changed after a formula was inserted through the web editor. Now the properties do not change anymore after a formula.

  • Fixed a bug where the re-do action was not working in TinyMCE 6 and Froala. Now the re-do action works as expected.

  • Fixed a bug where an error was displayed when adding to the website the contents edited with an HTML editor if some text was added before some LaTeX code. Now no error is returned.

  • Fixed a bug where dragging and dropping an inserted formula with brackets would change the brackets to parentheses. Now the brackets do not change after being dragged and dropped.

MathType Integrations 8.6.0 - October 2023

We have generated an alternative installation method for our HTML Editor integrations, which are now served from our CDN as well. Some bugs and one vulnerability have been fixed, too.

What's Improved

  • Now we generate "external integration" scripts for all our HTML Editors integrations, as an alternative installation method. These are served from our CDN.

What's fixed

  • Vulnerability fix in our MT for Tiny6 integration.

  • We have fixed a bug where the alt text was not adequately generated in our BlackBoard LMS integration.

  • We have fixed a bug where hand-written formulae weren't filtered in CKEditor 5.

  • We have fixed a bug that prevented the modification of LaTeX formulae when editing them in CKEditor 5.

New features

We include the possibility to configure different prefixes on XHTML files.

MathType Integrations 8.5.0 - August 2023

This release of MathType Integrations comes with a new render engine that will improve how the equations are rendered.

There is also a significant effort in bug fixing.

New features

The new render engine comes with all these improvements:

  • You can download the package from NPM here. You will also find it in our integration services package or add the script in the HTML of the page.

  • Our new render engine is now retro-compatible with older integration versions.

  • This new render engine is open source, and you can find it in our Github repository wiris/html-integrations.

  • It has a dynamic configuration allowing you to change its parameters.

What's fixed

  • We have improved our handwritten formula parser to generate an exact MathML object than the editor formula parser.

  • Froala bug fixes:

    • When clicking on the ChemType button, it works as expected

    • When an image is loaded before or after a formula, it works as expected

  • CKEditor 4 bug fixes:

    • When clearing CKE4 contents right after inserting a formula, it works as expected

  • Fixed inline widgets and caret misbehavior.

  • Now preloaded formulas don't get misaligned when double-clicked.

  • ChemType formulas won't be generated in italic anymore. Only MathType formulas will.

MathType Integrations - 8.3.1 - May 2023

This new release is a hotfix version. It solves many bugs in our CKEditor5 integration reported by our customers. No new feature has been added.

What's fixed

We fixed the following bugs in our CKEditor5 integration:

  • When copying/pasting a formula along with a “line break”, the line break was removed. Now it persists.

  • When trying to edit a handwritten copy/paste formula by double-clicking it, it wasn't opened in handwriting mode. Now it is.

  • When dragging and dropping a formula from one instance of the editor to another, the formula wasn't editable. Now it is.

  • A memory leak was produced when destroying instances of our editor. The objects ClassicEditor and CKEditor5Integration weren't properly managed by the garbaged collector. Now they do, so the memory leak is gone.

  • Custom toolbars that added the “<” and “>” symbols corrupted formulas, so they couldn't be rendered appropriately. Now they do.

Mathtype Integrations 8.3.0 - May 2023

This new release is a minor version. It brings three new features along with the fix of many bugs. It also adds changes needed for the staging demos to work with the test automation. The features are:

  • Send custom headers to the API requests.

  • Globalization of the event handlers for opening and closing the editor.

  • A friendly message alerting the users that the editor is offline and needs an internet connection to work.

New features

  • The integration will trigger a friendly pop-up alert to notify the editor has gone offline.

  • The editor opening and closing event handlers have been exposed globally for them to be conveniently used.

  • This new version allows the user to add custom headers to the editor's requests.

What's Improved

  • Our staging server has been updated with changes to the test automation.

What's fixed

  • Bugfix: The formulas edited using ChemType won't add an extra blank space between the math and xmlns tags.

  • Bugfix: Now, the editor can insert an edited LaTeX formula when placed next to another rendered formula.

  • Bugfix: Narrow screens are now handled as mobile, so the editor applies the proper properties.

  • Bugfix: The integration for TinyMCE6 has been updated to handle the new TinyMCE API and pass the proper settings to the Wiris editor parameters. Consequently, our TinyMCE6 advanced options are functional back again.

MathType Integrations 8.2.0 - March 2023

With this release, we are going big on bug fixing, with more than 15 bugs solved.

What's fixed

  • We got our integration services updated to be compatible with PHP 8.1

  • Progressing in our automated test initiatives, we added a data-testid attribute in the interactable elements in the HTML-Integrations demos to work them in Cypress.

  • The old telemetry component has been removed from the Devkit.

  • A new telemetry class has been created in the Devkit to deal with Telemeter methods in our integrations.

  • We added new telemetry events to our HTML Integrations.

  • We removed the language configuration for consistency with the other editor demos, as it is already set in editorParameteres.

  • The technical demo for Froala had deprecated licensing messages activated. We removed them.

  • We fixed a null reference when editing editorParameteres.

  • We made the minimize and maximize modal buttons accessible via the tab.

  • An alternative text has been given to the MT and CT icons for accessibility.

  • We have fixed internal issues when building TinyMCE demos.

  • Add xmlns attribute to default formulas.

  • When a Froala demo is opened, the editor is not focused by default, and we cannot insert formulas. Now we fixed that, and we can insert formulas at the beginning of the editor when this is not focused.

  • Solved internal issues when developing with the mono repository → The changes made on the devkit plugin were not applied when building the packages.

  • The front end applies the changes when using the wiris editor parameter language.
