Upgrading to CKEditor 4.1

CKEditor 4.1 introduced an innovative set of features that we dubbed Advanced Content Filter (ACF in short). These features change the way that the editor deals with input data, so upgrading to version 4.1 requires some understanding of what has changed. More importantly, you will need to take into account the fact that since CKEditor 4.1 content filtering is now turned on by default and will affect all data that is input into the editor, including content created in the past and stored in your database or website. Failure to understand what ACF is about and incorrect ACF implementation might result in data loss.
