CKEditor Weekly for December 02, 2014
We're back with another CKEditor Weekly! CKEditor 4.4.6 was released last week with an important update so it's worth upgrading. We also have yet another change in the Documentation site, and some news related to Firefox as well as other happenings around the community...
CKEditor in review
- CKEditor 4.4.6 was released last week! The update introduced a few fixes, features and a patch for a security issue. An upgrade is recommended. You can read more about CKEditor 4.4.6 here.
- Firefox fixed a bug that we reported where the cursor wouldn’t move with keyboard arrows. Somebody out there listens!
- It's a little known fact that the Mozilla Developer Network uses CKEditor to edit its wiki pages (most people unknowingly use CKEditor on a daily basis). For a while MDN had been using an outdated version of CKEditor, mainly because of the heavy modifications done to it.
For the last year, Piotrek Koszulinski has worked tirelessly in his free time to upgrade CKEditor on MDN to the latest version. He also significantly improved the editor's architecture so now CKEditor can be easily updated.
There's still a lot of work to be done since the editor is used in "a pretty tough environment", as Piotrek put it, but at least the groundwork is laid for a very impressive improvement in MDN's editing experience.
- We have a new article on Patching Old CKEditor Versions. The article describes a method that requires deep understanding of the code you are porting as well as the build process, so please familiarize yourself with it before proceeding.
