CKEditor in Review

CKEditor 4

CKEditor 4.5.10

Before releasing CKEditor 4.6 we are planning to release a minor update (4.5.10) which introduces a couple of bug fixes. Of particular note is issue #10750 which brought some problems with the editor not unquoting the font-family style property, causing some non-typical font names to not work correctly.

CKEditor 4.6

We would like to release CKEditor 4.6 by the end of July - however, with the holiday season now in full swing, this may still be delayed a bit. It will come with a completely re-written Paste from Word feature (which will be a huge step forward for all copy and paste operations from Microsoft applications) and a completely new default skin to visually enhance your editing experience. Depending on resources, we hope to squeeze in a few new features as well, so stay tuned!

CKEditor 5

During the last two weeks, we have been able to finish version 0.1.0.

With over 400 issues closed, we will be tagging the first version in CKEditor 5 still this week and releasing it soon.

During the last week we have worked on the most important stability issues, some API improvements, and a couple of new features:

Since 0.1.0 is coming to an end, we worked on defining the next iterations. You can read more about the proposed release model on GitHub.
