The new Page Editor includes a host of new features to improve collaboration and workflow, as well as tools to help editors create more effective, findable, and accessible content. As Wagtail is an open source project, once new features and improvements have been developed and incorporated into the main Wagtail project, all Wagtail users will reap the benefits for free.
