CKEditor Weekly for October 14, 2013

Welcome to CKEditor Weekly, a summary of all the interesting happenings in and around the CKEditor community. CKEditor 4.2.2 will be released some time today! Needless to say it was a busy few days for the core development team. Read on for details... 

CKEditor in review

  • CKEditor 4.2.2 is out! The update introduced a handful of fixes for accessibility-related issues with panels, floating toolbar, and JAWS as well as some browser-specific problems. You can read more about the specific changes here... 
  • The team reported a Chrome bug on Google's dev site that deletes content in the WYSIWYG area when backspace is pressed. This is a perfect example of how browsers sometimes complicate the lives of developers, and how some issues are out of our hands. You can view the bug's progress on our dev site as well. 
  • As a result of discussions between CKEditor devs and Wim Leers at DrupalCon Prague a "Stark" CKEditor skin might see the light of day, possibly based on the Moono skin. 
  • It was a rather calm week for CKEditor 4.3 but now that 4.2.2 is out the team will shift gears back on the upcoming major release. 

Around the Net

  • Zmmaj submitted a plugin that lets you add QR images to your articles. The plugin makes it easy to select the size of the image. You can grab it from our Add-ons repository

  • PeteAUK released a new Character Count plugin that inserts a "button" into the toolbar which contains the current character or word count. You can download it from the plugin's Github page

  • Jesse Beach submitted a new Drupal 8 patch (passed) that improves CKEditor toolbar configuration and usage accessibility. The patch helps configure and use the CKEditor toolbar using keyboard navigation.

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