We would like to announce the release of CKEditor 4.3.1. This editor version is a minor bug-fixing release that follows our last major release, CKEditor 4.3, that introduced the amazing Widget System. CKEditor 4.3.1 includes lots of enhancements for various widget and accessibility issues as well as some browser-specific fixes.
Please note that this release contains a few changes that will align the new plugins (Language and Enhanced Image) to our naming conventions. To start with, the lower-case
language button of the Language plugin was renamed to
Language (upper-case). And since the Image and Enhanced Image plugins are mutually exclusive, we have also renamed the button, context menu, plugin command, and icon for the new image widget plugin to match the old one.
This release also introduces some fixes and enhancements to our Widget System. A few notable changes are fixes around image resizing for the Enhanced Image widget as well as some further fixes for widget drag and drop operations. Please note that since the Clipboard plugin is needed for widget drag and drop, it is now added as the dependency for the Widget plugin. Do remember that the recommended way to install any additional CKEditor plugins, including widgets, is through CKBuilder which makes the whole process hassle-free and you will never need to worry about resolving the dependencies like that by yourself!
Accessibility remains a priority in CKEditor, so this version improves some issues with keyboard navigation across the editor drop-down menus and menu items. WAI-ARIA support for the new Language plugin was also enhanced and an issue with JAWS not recognizing disabled buttons as unavailable is now fixed.
