CKEditor Weekly for April 14, 2014

We're back with another edition of CKEditor Weekly. CKEditor 4.4 is almost here and two CKEditor core developers attended UX Poland 2014 in Warsaw, Poland. Read on for more... 

CKEditor in review

  • The CKEditor team is currently testing CKEditor 4.4, so it's almost here. It should be out this week! As reported in previous weeklies, it's a major release so it will include a variety of new features:

  • Wiktor Walc and Aleksander Nowodzinski attended UX Poland 2014 in Warsaw last Thursday and Friday. The yearly conference gives developers a chance to exchange ideas on how to improve user experience.

    Both devs attended various lectures on accessibility, speech recognition, gestures and touch input. Overall impressions are that the event was very professional and informative. There was a lot of focus on accessibility this year, something that CKEditor is quite focused on. Here are pics from events:

Around the Net

  • Alfonso published a simple plugin that removes the restrictions imposed by the default "save" command in CKEditor. 

  • Stephan H. Wissel posted a blog on how to use CKEditor with Mustache in XPages.

  • Jason Hibbets interviewed Angie Byron (@webchick) on opensource.com. She talks about Drupal 8 out of the box and mentions the CMS coming with a WYSIWYG editor (CKEditor) and in-place editing (inline editing). 

  • Tse-Ching Ho released an update for his gem that integrates CKEditor with the Rails asset pipeline. It works in Ruby 1.9.3+ and Rails 3.0+.

​That's it for this week. If you would like to be featured in one of our CKEditor Weeklies, or have an interesting tidbit that relates to CKEditor, leave a comment below or contact us!
