We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 3.6.2. This is mainly a maintenance release that follows the latest major version of our editor and contains a handful of bug fixes as well as some nice new features.
iOS 5 Support (iPad and iPhone)
iOS 5 is the upcoming operating system to be released by Apple for the iPad and the iPhone. We have put our hands on its beta versions and the outcome is exciting. We were happy to find out that iOS 5 finally provides the necessary functions to make CKEditor work in this environment. It is still not perfect — it is a beta after all — but we are impressed with how usable the editing experience is with it. Thumbs up to Apple and the WebKit team!
CKEditor 3.6.2 is now enabled on iOS 5. Those lucky guys who have access to the iOS betas can already try it. Its final public release should reach Apple devices soon and CKEditor will be ready for it.
It Is Easy to Leave Block Quotes
We are now introducing an easier way to move out of block quotes. In the same fashion as with lists, just press the Enter key on an empty paragraph inside a block quote and the cursor will move out of it. Until now, the user was required to click the Block Quote toolbar button in order to move our of it. We are sure that this new option will be very welcomed.
Other New Features and Fixes
For those using CKEditor to create forms, it will now be possible to edit textarea contents directly from the editor dialog windows. Some minor API additions are also available along with several language pack updates and overall editor fixes.
