CKEditor 4.4.4 Released

We would like to announce the release of CKEditor 4.4.4 that includes a variety of improvements, including the removal of the deprecated keypress event listener from the undo manager, fixes for a few issues related to pasting content and for some browser-specific issues.

Keyboard Handling Rewritten

The editor's undo manager was using the keypress event — which is now deprecated. The partial rewrite of this feature fixed numerous issues with the editor change event in several usage scenarios. Additionally, a few more minor changes were also introduced to the undo manager in order to make the undo/redo mechanism more smooth and intuitive.

CKEditor Fixes

Further community contributions are also included in this release. Two fixes for the Paste from Word feature were provided by Alin Purcaru, while CasherWest did a cleanup of YUI styles for the UI Color plugin. Thanks for your work, guys!

A small but significant accessibility fix causes the editor to properly use the custom instance title set in the config.title property as a voice label. Last but not least, this editor release also contains the latest versions of the spell checker plugins with a few important fixes included.
