    A sad day. One of the most useful GPL licensed plugins for JIRA has been discontinued: https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JRTE-25?focusedCommentId=295237&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-295237 Mr Holger Schimanski (Developer), thanks for your effort.

    Plugin works like a charm :-) And I will grant it four stars as soon as it supports the new visual mode rich text editor introduced with JIRA 7.2 (right now, code blocks get converted into a table!!!!)

    Sorry, nothing I can fix at the moment. Rich Text Editor is breaking any custom developed macros like JIRA Syntax Highlighter. Please find details and vote here. https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JRTE-25
