CKEditor 4.7.2 released

We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.7.2. This is a minor release that adds integration of the Justify plugin with Advanced Content Filter and introduces the possibility to paste widgets inside table cells. In addition to that, SCAYT (Spell Check As You Type) was updated and some bugs were fixed. Read on for more information!

ACF and Justify feature

The somehow earlier omitted Justify plugin is now integrated with Advanced Content Filter, the editor's filtering mechanism that filters incoming HTML content to match the editor configuration. You thus may want to review your ACF rules as they can be used to restrict elements which can be aligned in the editor. For example, you can now easily disallow aligning list items or headings.

Pasting widgets into table cells

In yet another update to the table system we have just introduced support for pasting widgets into table cells. This functionality is integrated with the Undo plugin, although some minor issues are still outstanding and will be tackled in the nearest future.

CKEditor fixes

This release fixes a few bugs when the editor was throwing errors on clicking the scrollbar or pressing Select All when in source mode. The CKEDITOR.domrange.extractContents and CKEDITOR.domrange.cloneContents methods now both return correct values. Last but not least, a new CKEDITOR.dom.nodeList.toArray method was added to the API. In addition to that, SCAYT (Spell Check As You Type) was updated to the latest version.
