FCKeditor 2.6.5 released!

Welcome to the past! 👻
Unfortunately, FCKeditor is no longer maintained. RIP ❤️

Instead, you can check our new and powerful rich text editor framework, CKEditor 5. It has a modular architecture, integrations with popular JavaScript frameworks and features like real-time collaborative editing.

Or, you can discover CKEditor 4, which is an enterprise-grade WYSIWYG editor with countless features and wide browser compatibility including the legacy ones.

Take me to the future ✨

A new major release of our good and widely known FCKeditor is available. We've been focused on fixing small compatibility issues with some browsers (IE8 mainly) and porting a nice feature introduced with CKEditor 3, our unique Spell Check As You Type (SCAYT) solution.

This release also introduces some important security fixes. Upgrading is highly recommended. Special thanks to Pete Freitag Foundeo Inc. for reporting the security issue.
