Hi,

Currently upgrading from AEM 6.1 to 6.3, but have found all custom plugins now do not work in 6.3 for the Rich Text Editor.
Is there a guide on how to upgrade?

Thanks,

David

Yup, OK. So I can get new plugins to work for 6.3.

But what about existing plugins that were for 6.1?  What's the upgrade path for them?

6.1 ones should be re-written and tested for 6.3. Like any OSGi code that uses newer APIs.

update - our touch UI eng team stated  -  61 to 63 RTE api has changed and the plugin might need code changes
