the new "Paste" popup is shown to the user to complete the pasting operation.
- Various fixes to the ColdFusion File Browser connector.
- We are now pointing the download of ieSpell to their pages, instead to a direct
file download from one of their mirrors. This disables the ability of "click and
go" (which can still be achieved by pointing the download to a file in your server),
but removes any troubles with mirrors link changes (and they change it frequently).
- The Word cleanup has been changed to remove "display:none" tags that may come from

- [#90] The editor
was wrongly removing some <br> tags from the code.
- [#139] The CTRL+F
and CTRL+S keystroke default behaviors are now preserved.

in the browser security settings.

- [#211] Some invalid
inputs, like "<p>" where making the caret disappear in Firefox.
- [#99] The <div>

setting is now correctly handled in Firefox.
- [#248] The behavior
of the backspace key has been fixed on some very specific cases.
New Features and Improvements:
BUG-1564838] The advance Enter Key Handler
is now being introduced. It gives you complete freedom to configure the editor to
generate <p>, <div> or <br> when the user uses
both the [Enter] and [Shift]+[Enter] keys. The new "EnterMode" and "ShiftEnterMode"
settings can be use to control its behavior. It also guarantees that all browsers
will generate the same output.
- The new and powerful Keyboard Accelerator System is being introduced.
You can now precisely control the commands to execute when some key combinations
are activated by the user. It guarantees that all browsers will have the same behavior
regarding the shortcuts.
It also makes it possible to remove buttons from the toolbar and still invoke their
features by using the keyboard instead.
It also blocks all default "CTRL based shortcuts" imposed by the browsers, so if
you don't want users to underline text, just remove the CTRL+U combination from
the keystrokes table. Take a look at the FCKConfig.Keystrokes setting in the fckconfig.js
- The new "ProtectedTags" configuration option is being introduced.
It will accept a list of tags (separated by a pipe "|"), which will have no effect
during editing, but will still be part of the document DOM. This can be used mainly
for non HTML standard, custom tags.
- Dialog box commands can now open resizable dialogs (by setting oCommand.Resizable
- Updated support for AFP. Thanks to Soenke Freitag.
- New language file:
- Afrikaans (by Willem Petrus Botha).

default to the "/userfiles/" folder instead of "/UserFiles/" (case change). Also,
the inner folders for each type (file, image, flash and media) are all lower-cased

is not anymore valid. The EnterMode setting can now be used to precisely set the
enter key behavior.

New Features and Improvements:
- The project has been relicensed under the terms of the
GPL / LGPL / MPL licenses. This change will remove many licensing compatibility
issues with other open source licenses, making the editor even more "open" than
- Attention: The default directory in the distribution
package is now named "fckeditor" (in lowercase) instead of "FCKeditor". This
change may impact installations on case sensitive OSs, like Linux.
- Attention: The "Universal Keyboard" has been removed
from the package. The license of those files was unclear so they can't be included
alongside the rest of FCKeditor.
New Features and Improvements:
- Users can now decide if the template dialog will replace the entire contents of
the editor or simply place the template in the cursor position. This feature can
be controlled by the "TemplateReplaceAll" and "TemplateReplaceCheckbox" configuration
Patch-1237693] A new configuration option (ProcessNumericEntities)
is now available to tell the editor to convert non ASCII chars to their relative
numeric entity references. It is disabled by default.
- The new "AdditionalNumericEntities" setting makes it possible to
define a set of characters to be transformed to their relative numeric entities.
This is useful when you don't want the code to have simple quotes ('), for example.
- The Norwegian language file (no.js) has been duplicated to include the Norwegian
Bokmal (nb.js) in the supported interface languages. Thanks to Martin Kronstad.

created, so it is possible to point the Style and Format toolbar combos to a different
CSS, avoiding conflicts with the editor area CSS.
BUG-1489402] It is now possible to configure the Quick Uploder target path
to consider the file type (ex: Image or File) in the target path for uploads.
- The "CreateHtml()" function in the FCKeditor object, used to retrieve the HTML of
an editor instance, instead of writing it directly to the page (as done by "Create()").
- The global "FCKeditor_IsCompatibleBrowser()" function, which tells if the executing
browser is compatible with FCKeditor. This makes it possible to do any necessary
processing depending on the compatibility, without having to create and editor instance.
BUG-1500050] All event attributes (like onclick or onmouseover) are now
being protected before loading the editor. In this way, we avoid firing those events
during editing (IE issue) and they don't interfere in other specific processors
in the editor.
- Small security fixes to the File Browser connectors.

BUG-1507755] Fixed a conflict between the "DisableObjectResizing" and "ShowBorders"
configuration options over IE.
- Opera 9 tries to "mimic" Gecko in the browser detection system of FCKeditor. As
this browser is not "yet" supported, the editor was broken on it. It has been fixed,
and now a textarea is displayed, as in any other unsupported browser. Support for
Opera is still experimental and can be activated by setting the property "EnableOpera"
- With Opera 9, the toolbar was jumping on buttons rollover.
BUG-1509479] The iframes used in Firefox for all editor panels (dropdown combos,
context menu, etc...) are now being placed right before the main iframe that holds
the editor. In this way, if the editor container element is removed from the DOM
(by DHTML) they are removed together with it.

remove instances of FCKeditor dynamically.

disable by default.

BUG-1490259] No more security warning on IE over HTTPS.
BUG-1499708] We now assume that, if a user is in source editing, he/she

work. Skin styles definitions have being merged, added and removed. All skins have
been a little bit reviewed.
- It is possible to detach the toolbar from an editor instance and
share it with other instances. In this way you may have only one toolbar (in the
top of the window, for example, that can be used by many editors (see

focus still to be solved).*

configuration option has been introduced. It makes it possible to set whenever is
needed to maintain the user session in the File Browser. It is disabled by default,
as it has very specific usage and may cause the File Browser to be blocked by popup
blockers. If you have custom File Browsers that depends on session information,
remember to activate it.

BUG-1200328] The editor now offers a way to "protect" part of the

Feature-1246623] The new configuration option "ForceStrongEm" has
been introduced so you can force the editor to convert all <B> and <I>

- A nice contribution has been done by Goss Interactive Ltd:
BUG-1246949] Implemented ENTER key and BACKSPACE key handlers for Gecko so that
P tags (or an appropriate block element) get inserted instead of BR tags when not
in the UseBROnCarriageReturn config mode.
The ENTER key handling has been written to function much the same as the ENTER key
handling on IE : as soon as the ENTER key is pressed, existing content will be wrapped
with a suitable block element (P tag) as appropriate and a new block element (P
tag) will be started.
The ENTER key handler also caters for pressing ENTER within empty list items - ENTER
in an empty item at the top of a list will remove that list item and start a new
P tag above the list; ENTER in an empty item at the bottom of a list will remove
that list item and start a new P tag below the list; ENTER in an empty item in the
middle of a list will remove that list item, split the list into two, and start
a new P tag between the two lists.
- Any tables that are found to be incorrectly nested within a block element (P tag)
will be moved out of the block element when loaded into the editor. This is required
for the new ENTER/BACKSPACE key handlers and it also avoids non-compliant HTML.
- The InsertOrderedList and InsertUnorderedList commands have been overridden on Gecko
to ensure that block elements (P tags) are placed around a list item's content when
it is moved out of the list due to clicking on the editor's list toolbar buttons
(when not in the UseBROnCarriageReturn config mode).
BUG-1265520] Due to changes on version 2.0, the anchor list was not anymore
visible in the link dialog window. It has been fixed.

in the page where the editor is placed in (IE issue). Thanks to Simone Chiaretta.
BUG-1305619 ] No more repeated login dialogs when running the editor with Windows
Integrated Security with IIS.
Patch-1245304] The Test Case 004 is now working correctly. It has been changed
to set the editor hidden at startup.
BUG-1290610 ] Over HTTPS, there were some warnings when loading the Images,
Flash and Link dialogs. Fixed.
- Due to Gecko bugs, two errors were thrown when loading the editor in a hidden div.
Workarounds have been introduced. In any case, the testcase 004 hack is needed when
showing the editor (as in a tabbed interface).
- An invalid path in the dialogs CSS file has been corrected.
- On IE, the Undo/Redo can now be controlled using the Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y shortcut
BUG-1295538 ] A few Undo/Redo fixes for IE have been done.

(CTRL+B), Italic (CTRL+I) and Underline (CTRL+U), like in IE.

- The caption property on tables is now working on Gecko. Thanks to Helen Somers (Goss
BUG-1297431] With IE, the editor now works locally when its files are placed
in a directory path that contains spaces.
BUG-1242105] On IE, some features are dependant of ActiveX components (secure...
distributed with IE itself). Some security setting could avoid the usage of
those components and the editor would stop working. Now a message is shown, indicating
the use the minimum necessary settings need by the editor to run.
BUG-1298880] Firefox can't handle the STRONG and EM tags. Those tags are now
converted to B and I so it works accordingly.
BUG-1271723] On IE, it is now possible to select the text and work correctly
in the contents of absolute positioned/dimensioned divs.

- The new "Flash" command is available. Now you can
easily handle Flash content, over IE and Gecko, including server browser integration

is used instead. *
- A "Quick Upload " option is now available in the
link, image and flash dialog windows, so the user don't need to go (or have) the
File Browser for this operations. The ASP and PHP uploader are included. Take

- It is now possible to disable the size handles for images and tables

of its contents have been disabled. This makes it easier to users to use
- A much better support for Word pasting operations has been introduced. Now it uses
a dialog box, in this way we have better results and more control.**
Patch-1225372] A small change has been done to the PHP integration file. The
generic __construct constructor has been added for better PHP 5 sub-classing compatibility
(backward compatible). Thanks to Marcus Bointon.

BUG-999792] URLs now remain untouched when initializing the editor or
switching from WYSYWYG to Source and vice versa.
BUG-1082323] The problem in the ASP and PHP connectors when handling non
"strange" chars in file names has been corrected.
BUG-1076796] Some bugs in the PHP connector have been corrected.
- A problem with the "Format" command on IE browsers on languages different
of English has been solved. The negative side of this correction is that due to
a IE bad design it is not possible to update the "Format" combo while
moving throw the text (context sensitive).
- On Gecko browsers, when selecting an image and executing the "New Page"
command, the image handles still appear, even if the image is not available anymore

- A minimal browse server sample is now available in ASP. Thanks to Andreas Barnet.
- ATTENTION: For PHP users: The editor was changed and now uses

for the editor instead of output it (echo). This feature is useful for people who
are working with Smarty Templates or something like that. Thanks to Timothy J. Finucane.
- Many people have had problems with international characters over
PHP. I had also the same problem. PHP have strange problems with
character encoding. The code hasn't been changed but just saved again with Western
European encoding. Now it works well in my system.
Take a look also at the "default_charset" configuration option at the
php.ini file. It doesn't seem to be an editor's problem but a PHP issue.

Quotes " that are automatically added by PHP on form posts.

- The Table dialog box now handles the Style width and height set

- No image is shown in the preview pane if no image has been set.

- Chinese (Taiwan) (zh-tw)

- The "Multi Language" system is now available. This version
ships with English and Italian versions completed. Other languages will be available
soon. The editor automatically detects the client language and sets all labels,
tooltips and dialog boxes to it, if available. The auto detection and the default
language can be set in the fck_config.file.
- Two files can now be created to isolate customizations code from the original source
code of the editor: fckeditor.config.js and fckeditor.custom.js.
Create these files in the root folder of your web site, if needed. The first one
can be used to add or override configurations set on fck_config.js. The second one
is used for custom actions and behaviors.
- A problem with relative links and images like "/test/test.doc" has been
solved. In prior versions, only with XHTML support enabled, the URL was changed
to something like "http://www.mysite.xxx/test/test.doc" (The domain was
automatically added). Now the XHTML cleaning procedure gets the URLs exactly how
they are defined in the editor’s HTML.
