Per documentation:  dotCMS uses TinyMCE 4.9.6 as its base WYSIWYG. Please make a note of this when looking at any TinyMCE documentation.

When is dotCMS going to update this vital component to the latest? TinyMCE reached end of support for v.5 in April 2023. The current version is 6. As a government agency, I'm particularly interested in the accessibility validation plugin which is vastly improved in the latest version.

Newer versions of TinyMCE have updated licensing that makes it so we cannot ship with them as part of dotCMS. This is a major part of the motivation for us to create the block editor (as well as other features that we wanted to add). 

If TinyMCE upgrades are required, it should be possible to implement it as a custom field, but we have not done this specifically.
