Block Enhancements - allow to inline edit nested blocks

It's a pleasure to announce that we have just released a new version v0.3.0 which contains the support for Inline Edit in nested blocks scenarios.

Previously Content Area properties were a bit hard to use inside the Inline Edit dialog, as the DnD is not available and we had to disable the "Create new block" button.

After upgrading to v0.3.0 you will see the "Browse" button 

The release also contains a few bug fixes, the most important one was related to EPiBootstrapArea - a great Add-on from Valdis Iljuconoks, both add-ons are now compatible and do not interfere with one another.

Inline Edit browse button

The new version is already available on our NuGet feed https://nuget.episerver.com/package/?id=EPiServer.Labs.BlockEnhancements

The code is Open Source and is available on github https://github.com/episerver/EPiServer.Labs.BlockEnhancements

We are working on something really cool that will make the editing process even simpler, hopefully in September we should be done. Stay tuned! :)

Jesper, 

We were thinking about https://github.com/episerver/EPiServer.Labs.BlockEnhancements/issues/13

But for now we added https://world.episerver.com/blogs/bartosz-sekula/dates/2019/11/simple-block-publishing---episerver-labs-blockenhancements-v0-5-0/

that also does the job quite nicely.

But of course, more new stuff to come :)
