442 * JSON strings are now displayed as-is in the document view, without the escaping of
443 new-lines and quotes. That dramatically improves readability of multi-line
444 strings.
445 * Same goes for editing of JSON string values. When a change to a field value is
446 submitted, and the value is not valid JSON it is assumed to be a string. This
447 improves editing of multi-line strings a lot.
448 * Hitting tab in textareas no longer moves focus to the next form field, but simply
449 inserts a tab character at the current caret position.
450 * Fixed some font declarations.
