I've updated the roadmap for EWB so that you can see what's being planned for upcoming releases:

Thanks for the update.

I did not see the HTMLEditor on the road map?

Walter,

<< I did not see the HTMLEditor on the road map? >>

I'm working on it again, but I'm not sure how much time is left on it yet.  HTML editors that use the built-in designer functionality in the browsers are notoriously hard to get working correctly, so I need to do some more work before I'll know how close it is.

Hi Tim,

First, let me congratulate you on all you've accomplished.

I see a couple things I really like are coming in the pipeline, like sync keyword, great.

Microsoft has announced the upcoming removal of IE in the coming year, which I think will affect EWB's IDE.
So I'm just wondering how the replacement (chrome or edge or whatever) is coming along.  Also, browser debugging information would be really nice because web page debugging can be very challenging right now which I think is tied to the new browser support.

I look forward to the Linux server support too, understand that is probably quite a challenge.

Keep up the good work.

Sincerely,
Erick

It's not really coming along much yet, but I have tested the embedded Edge browser to ensure that I have everything correct in terms of what needs to change for the installations/IDE builds.  I'll probably do the whole thing in two stages: introduce the Edge support in the IDE followed by the integrated client application debugger.

Yes, it is part of the same improvement.  IE never had a good debugging solution that was documented by MS.

Will the HTML Editor have image support?

It uses the design-mode feature of the browsers, so it has the ability to support "everything".  However, the initial support will be more limited and constrained to styling, links, and images.  Pretty much the big "word processing" items that need to be there.

That sounds good to me.  I'm building a Knowledge Base app so that's the sort of thing that will be very useful.

Thanks.
