CKEditor 4.4.7 Released

We would like to announce the release of CKEditor 4.4.7. This is a minor release that includes just a dozen of bug fixes for various editor issues, enhancing Paste from Word operations and support for multi-byte Japanese characters, improving filling empty blocks behavior and correcting UI color setting for custom skins. This is also yet another release that contains some excellent community contributions.

CKEditor Fixes

Interestingly enough, this release fixes an issue with incorrect behavior of the config.fillEmptyBlocks option that existed since version 4.0, but has only been reported recently. Another long outstanding issue was with the Paste from Word filter being executed for every paste operation performed after using the toolbar button, no matter if clipboard access was granted or not. A solution for a problem with multi-byte Japanese characters not working properly after a line break was also found. Last but not least, an error thrown if a skin does not have the chameleon property defined and config.uiColor is set was corrected, too.

Community Contributions

This release includes a few community-contributed improvements, too. Overall, we are getting more and more pull requests for the CKEditor development repository, and we are happy to see that the quality of these contributions is becoming really high. The CKEditor automated testing environment based on Bender.js makes it easier to monitor how each proposed code change affects the editor code base and we are happy to see so much interest from the community.

A few of these fixes made it to CKEditor 4.4.7. Paul Martin fixed an issue with the Table Resize plugin operating on elements outside the editor. Vita10gy fixed the table-layout CSS property which should have been reset by skins (but was not) and Vitaliy Zurian resolved the uncaught security exception thrown when Line Utilities were being used in an inline editor loaded in a cross-domain <iframe> element. We would like to thank the authors of these code fixes and also, as usually, keep them coming, guys!
