This update will install CKEditor5 in the distribution. For your project CKEditor4 will remain the default text editor. If you would like to continue familiarising yourself with CKEditor5, you will need to request for it to be enabled via a service desk ticket. This will enable you continue testing in a feature branch.

If you’re comfortable with CKEditor5 and would like one less thing to worry about in the D10 upgrade, you can enable CKEditor 5 as your default text editor from now.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1: Deployments during maintenance window
- During the scheduled maintenance window, ALL D9 SaaS deployments will be blocked while we deploy to the D9 Production branches.
- While the production block is on, you will still be able to develop and deploy to non-production feature branches.
- PaaS deployments schedules are not impacted.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: Update local environments
- Ensure you update your local environments to the latest release. Not rebasing your codebase results in mismatched database configuration causing errors in forklifts and deployments.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 3: For customers with configuration management enabled
- The latest configuration from your production database has been created for you in GitLab in a branch called action-required/latest-config-export.
- You need to review and test the changes in the merge request. Once you are satisfied, please check the “Delete source branch” box and click “Merge”.
- This MUST be done before any new commits.
- All subsequent deployments will be blocked in the CI pipeline until this merge request branch is deleted
- Not merging the latest configuration provided could result in your new database configuration reverting to an older version when you next deploy, potentially causing issues for your website.
- If no merge request is lodged after a release then no configuration has changed and no further action is required.
