So, I've finally gotten the new editor up on Tabulas!

You can access it at 

Features? Well, it's simplified significantly for the writing experience. The hope is that it encourages more long-form entry writing. 

The editor box autoscales to the height of your content, so it reduces the "double scrollbar" problem that's on the current editor. 

It also features a drag-and-drop image uploader (and a multi-select image uploader) which should make sharing images much, much easier. 

And best - autosave. It will autosave whatever you're writing into drafts so you don't have to worry about explicitly saving! I do need to do some more work to prevent accidental loss (for example, if you load a draft, then start writing a new entry in the same box, it will wipe away the old draft), but it's a great start. 

For example, here is a photo of me at Oktoberfest:

And here I am at Max's wedding:

(Sometimes the editor has problems with problems with the heights when images are there - a bug I'll surely nail down). 

I'm not requiring this as the default, but I would highly suggest you play with it and help me work out any issues with it - it will become the default soon enough! 

And here is a partial screenshot of me authoring this page:

I wanted to ask: what made you decide on such a sudden change?
The old editor seem great and lasted for years. But if it's for the best then we'll try to get used to it :)

p/s: I wonder if we can get a tag cloud as well since it's easier to choose categories now :)

p/p/s: I never knew you were, or at least look like an asian :P

Good luck, we'll be supporting you :) It will take some time to get used to it though.

Well judging by your sideview that your tiny usericon displays, I thought you were a caucasian! (for like 7 years) Because as a chinese I can never even dream of having a nose bridge lol. & the name 'Roy' isn't very common among the people I know. Maybe it's just my social network :P

Sorry for being rude tough. :)
