We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.5.4. Although it is a "minor" release focusing on bug fixes and stability improvements, it also introduces a brand new internal error logging mechanism. Read on for more information!
New Error Logging System
CKEditor 4.5.4 introduces a new internal error logging mechanism which will let us unify existing error logs and solve a class of issues that require controllable error logging. The new system is based on shortened error messages to not affect code size and at the moment it is mostly intended for internal use.
The following screenshot illustrates how an error for a required editor plugin is displayed in the console:
This release also contains a number of bug fixes. We are constantly improving the new drag and drop feature that was introduced in CKEditor 4.5, so a few issues with widget d&d were fixed. Additionally, updates to the parser will prevent the editor from removing empty HTML5 anchors without the
name attribute and header elements are now allowed to be a child of the
<summary> element. Last but not least, an annoying bug with drop-downs hiding right after opening on touch devices was also fixed.
