Media Chat

In the regular #core-images chat this Friday, 15 April, 19:00 UTC we are planning to discuss enhancements for 4.6. So far there are four items on the agenda:

  • We are planning to add responsive images to the editor and discuss different implementation methods, e.g. saving srcset and sizes attributes to the database versus generating them on the front end. See #36475.
  • The makers of TinyMCE recently released JavaScript image tools for editing images in the browser which could replace the current server based image editor. The new editor would be quite faster, allowing you to edit and resize images before uploading them, and it would be easier to include in other scripts. This may well be a feature project over a few releases.
  • PDF preview images. See #31050.
  • Continue to improve mixed content issues on HTTPS sites. See #34945.
