CKEditor Weekly for August 04, 2014

We're back with another edition of CKEditor Weekly. Development on a couple of projects has resumed and the community has been doing their part in improving CKEditor with various GitHub pull requests. Read on for more...

CKEditor in review

  • CKEditor's documentation site has a new guide on how to get and save data. However, it can't be stressed enough that saving data is a server-side operation, which means CKEditor does not offer anything more than JavaScript methods and events to access the data so that it can be saved on the server.
  • Work on the new Media Embed plugin has resumed.
  • Development on the Accessibility Checker app has also restarted.
  • Pasting content from desktop apps like Word will be improved in CKEditor 4.4.4 thanks to a pull request by Alin Purcaru.
  • Another pull request, courtesy of InvisibleBacon, will give CKEditor 4.5 the option to align the toolbar in inline mode based on right-to-left and left-to-right text alignment.
  • Finally, a pull request submitted by sbusse will add support for the HTML5 "required" attribute in form input elements in CKEditor 4.5.

Around the Net

  • The CKEditor wrapper for Vaadin was updated to support CKEditor version 4.4.3. Vaadin is a Java web application framework that helps you build modern Rich Internet Applications (RIA). 

  • Michael Sevestre released an update to Monologue, a mountable blogging engine for Rails. The update fixes a CKEditor incompatibility issue.
