CKEditor Weekly for July 15, 2014

We're back with another edition of CKEditor Weekly. The team will be releasing CKEditor 4.4.3 today! It's an important update so upgrading is recommended. Read on for more...

CKEditor in review

  • The core team is just about ready to release CKEditor 4.4.3. It's an update that will include a variety of fixes, an important security patch, and a couple of new features. Here are some of the new additons:
    • #12164Justify was added to Horizontal Alignment in table cell properties.
    • #1511: Undo manager now records object resizing.
    • #10422config.fillEmptyBlocks now works properly if a function is specified.
    • #8117 &  #1511: Added a fix where HTML5 <meta> tags will be allowed everywhere, including inside the <body> element.
    • And more... 
  • Piotr Jasiun is working on Drag and Drop events API. Next he will work on integrating Drag and Drop to Widgets, the Paste function and file uploads. Still loads of work to be done but after 6 months of grinding work Drag and Drop itself is pretty much done!
  • Piotrek Koszuliński, and most likely CKEditor creator, Frederico Knabben, are going to be at the Extensible Web Summit in Berlin in September 11. 

    It's an unconference where many future standards will be discussed. CKEditor representatives are mostly going to talk about contenteditable, which is the base of most of WYSIWYG editors on the web. It will be a follow up of what was discussed on the mailing list mentioned a few weeks ago, in which Piotrek Koszuliński was part of. Many of those involved will be in Berlin that day.
