CKEditor Weekly for April 27, 2015

Last week at CKSource was really exciting, with CKEditor and CKFinder (beta) releases published. Apart from samples for new features, we also produced some CKEditor 4.5 Beta screencasts and uploaded them to the CKEditor YouTube channel. Find out more in this issue of CKEditor Weekly!

CKEditor in Review

  • CKEditor 4.5 Beta was released last Tuesday with lots of new features, including drag&drop image upload, media embedding, new editor sample and toolbar configurator. You can see how the toolbar configurator works in the screencast below:

  • The team is working on the remaining issues to release the final version of CKEditor 4.5 as soon as possible. You can track the progress on the CKEditor development website.

Other Projects

CKFinder 3

The work on CKFinder 3 progressed:

  • A public issue tracker for CKFinder 3 was opened. Although the application is not yet widely available, you can already watch the progress and report feature requests.
  • Work on better support for the Right-To-Left environment has started.
  • Plenty of bugs were closed and work on writing automated tests continued.
  • The sample CustomPanel plugin was created along with dedicated documentation about creating custom panels in CKFinder.
  • An example showing how to open CKFinder in a modal dialog window using its API was created and will be included in the next distribution package.

CKFinder 2

CKFinder 2.5 was released last week. It includes changes required to use the new features introduced in CKEditor 4.5:

  • Uploading images pasted from clipboard directly into the editing area.
  • Drag&drop image uploads in CKEditor.

Around the Net

  • The effective_ckeditor gem was updated to version 1.6.2. This gem wraps the CKEditor Javascript library for use with the effective_regions gem.

That's it for this week. Remember that if you would like to be featured in one of our CKEditor Weeklies, or you are willing to share an interesting tidbit that relates to CKEditor or CKFinder, leave a comment below or contact us!
