CKEditor Biweekly for March 1, 2016
Here is the latest CKEditor update. Find out more about our progress with CKEditor and check out the proof of concept plugin enabling the user to use voice typing in CKEditor. Read on for more!
CKEditor in Review
We are currently working on the following issues:
- Ticket #14358 which is an irritating regression for CKEditor users after 4.5.0.
- More improvements to Paste from Word plugin.
Additionally, take a look at this proof of concept plugin enabling the user to use voice typing in CKEditor and let us know what you think!
We're continuing our work on the topics that we've started two weeks ago.
- The features concept has been moved forward. Commands are defined, a first implementation of the schema was proposed and we got some first, very basic UI compoments.
- The converterts (from tree model to tree view and back) are the biggest and most demanding mechanisms that we currently work on. Their flexibility (or lack thereof) will strongly affect the degree of data model detachement from the "view".
- We also worked on allowing running the editor's test suite natively (without PhantomJS) in Node.js. Running a headless editor in Node.js will allow creating server-side solutions using the same API which is crucial for collaborative editing and similar features.
If you haven't yet joined the discussions around UX, UI and themes feel free to do so! We'll be grateful for your feedback.
Testing CKFinder 3.3 is done and we're currently prepraring its release to be out in the next 2-3 weeks, since we are still working on .NET Connector Beta and the relevant documentation.
Around the Net
- The following new plugins were added to the CKEditor Add-ons Repository:
This sums up the last two weeks.
