  • There's absolutely no source mode. The editor is nice but I still feel uncomfortable when I can't look at the source for a moment.
  • There's no way to preview a diff of the changes anymore.
  • Links should probably have a title="". I naturally hover over links to see their target. I wanted to see if the target was correct and I had to fiddle with the link editor just to see something that should have been easily available.
  • It looks like the editor disables edit conflict handling. As I appear to have ended up overwriting an other user's edit.

As far as I understand there is no simple source, but an underlying data structure, which can be serialized as source. So it might be possible to edit source code but when you save an edit, the source code gets normalized (my guess).

The ability to view source for older edits would be fabulous. While testing, I experienced an edit-conflict, where I made this change only to see it wiped out by the next. Sometimes, it is useful in editing to be able to easily resurrect sections with markup without reverting the whole page. This doesn't seem to be possible anymore, although I may be missing the obvious in the unfamiliar work environment or it may simply not yet be possible.

Overall, I find it jaw-droppingly easy, although I'm sure it'll be a slightly more comfortable experience as more features are added in.
