CKEditor in Review

CKEditor 4

The team is closing the 4.5.3 milestone, which includes minor bug fixes and stability improvements.

This milestone fixes a number of issues in the Paste From Word plugin ( #8780, #11215, #12762, #13590) and brings several enhancements to the file upload system:

  • Introduced the config.fileTools_defaultFileName configuration option to allow the default file name for paste uploads (#13501).
  • Allowed the upload of bitmap (.bmp) image files (#13603).

The exact release date is yet to be announced as it depends on QA testing. However, 4.5.3 is expected to be released this week, which will be announced on the blog.

We are also excited that Firefox 40.0 fixed the regression that made content editing in widget editables impossible. More information about the bug can be found in #13507.

Other Projects

CKFinder 3

We are focusing on the upcoming release of CKFinder 3.1. Currently we are working on performance and user experience improvements, especially important for remote storages. Last week we:

  • Added a brand new Kurdish localization, as provided by Hozha Koyi. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Hozha for her work on translating both CKEditor and CKFinder - it's much appreciated!
  • Added a file caching mechanism which improves loading times for slow and remote backends.


  • New version was released with several fixes and changes, focusing on HTTPS support.
