Font Awesome v4.0.0-rc23 to v4.0.1 — Reason: FIX: In scenarios where both Gutenberg (Block) and TinyMCE (Classic) editors were being loaded onto the same page, the Gutenberg editor was not displaying properly. Now, in that multi-editor situation, the Icon Chooser integration is only enabled for the block editor. In those cases, you can still use icon shortcodes or HTML in the TinyMCE editor boxes; those editors just won’t have the “Add Font Awesome” media button for opening the Icon Chooser. The Icon Chooser is still available from the Classic Editor when the block editor is not present on the page. FIX: In scenarios where there are multiple TinyMCE editor instances on the same page, such as WooCommerce product editing pages, only the “Add Font Awesome” media button on the first of those editors was working correctly. Now all of them work correctly. FIX: In the Classic Editor, when other themes or plugins added media buttons after the “Add Font Awesome” button, those buttons were showing up as combined together and not working properly. Now they’re separated and working great. The Icon Chooser integration for the Classic Editor in WordPress 4 has been temporarily disabled. Everything else works as before in WP4, just not the new Icon Chooser.
