How to upgrade

This release does not have many breaking changes, but the editor's toolbar styles have changed a lot and this may cause breakage.

First, update Draftail and its Draft.js peer dependency: npm install --save draft-js@^0.10.4 draftail@0.9.0.

Then, you will want to update controls to leverage the new description prop. It will be displayed in the new toolbar tooltips. Here is a brief example:

        label: 'H3',
        // Use a description to further convey what the control does.
+        description: 'Heading 3',
        // The icon is enough 鈥 but use the new prop to help screen reader users.
-        label: 'UL',
+        description: 'Bulleted list',
        icon: 'icon-list-ul',
