We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 3.6.1. This is a maintenance release that follows the latest major version of the editor and contains a handful of bug fixes as well as a few new features, including some new API items that should make it even easier to customize CKEditor to your needs.
New CKEditor Features
This release is our first attempt to introduce HTML5 support. CKEditor will no longer interfere with the HTML5 code structure and we will be working hard to extend the support for this upcoming HTML standard in the future releases. We have also improved the usability of the Find/Replace feature by automatically filling the search field with the text selected in the editor.
CKEditor API Extended
Please note that the signature of the
setReadOnly() method (introduced in CKEditor 3.6) was changed, with the meaning of the parameter passed to it now reversed. The editor context menu options were also enhanced with a new
removeMenuItem() method. Developers interested in customizing the editor dialog windows will probably welcome the latest additions in this area, namely the
inputStyle properties. Last but not least,
styleDefinition can now be applied to a set of elements, making styling more convenient than before.
Among many enhancements and fixes that are available with this release, support for anchors was improved. The Remove Anchor option is now available from the context menu. Table support was also improved, with numerous fixes around cell, caption, and column handling introduced. This release also updates the new BBCode plugin that shows how to configure CKEditor to output BBCode instead of (X)HTML.
