Updates for seven commercial JCE plugins available in Watchful 1.8

Today marks a very exciting achievement for the crew here at Watchful as we announce the immediate availability of remote, 1-click updates for the following commercial plugins for the wildly popular JCE content editor for Joomla:

  • Caption
  • Emotions
  • File Manager
  • IFrames
  • Image Manager Extended
  • Media Manager
  • Template Manager

Not only does this feature address the most common feature request at Watchful, it marks a technological achievement for our engineers who built a new update engine to support JCE (since JCE plugins do not utilize the Joomla Updater like most commercial Joomla add-ons). 

Of course this would not have been possible without a strong collaboration with the JCE developer Ryan Demmer and we thank him for all his assistance.
