CKEditor 4.5.6 Released

We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.5.6. This is a minor release that focuses on updating the SCAYT (Spell Check As You Type) mechanism and introducing additional security mechanisms for file uploads. Read on for more information!

SCAYT Update

We have updated SCAYT (Spell Check As You Type) to the latest version. This update introduces such new features as the Language and Placeholder plugin as well as drag&drop support. Additionally, you can now enjoy the completely new (and experimental) GRAYT (Grammar As You Type) functionality!

Thanks to the update a number of SCAYT-related issues have also been fixed. You can check the latest SCAYT version on the SDK demo!

New Features

We are constantly working on improving the security of our software, so CKEditor 4.5.6 introduces a few tools that will make it even better in this regard. This release adds the CKEDITOR.tools.getCookie() and CKEDITOR.tools.setCookie() methods for accessing cookies as well as the CKEDITOR.tools.getCsrfToken() method. The CSRF token is now automatically sent by the File Browser and File Tools plugins during file uploads. The server-side upload handlers such as CKFinder may check it and use it to additionally secure the communication.
