How to test Redactor v2

To use Redactor v2, you'll need to enable the pre-releases channel on the relevant API Key (Account > API Keys). With that enabled, Redactor 2.0.0-rc1 will be available to install or update.

Please note: we do not recommend using it production just yet, unless you are happy to deal with bugs, rough edges we are polishing and documentation that we are still working on.

Check the upgrade notes if you are upgrading from 1.x for a list of changes and removed features in v2. You can also check the changelog and known issues.
