CKEditor 4.5.11 Release Blog Post Image

We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.5.11. Although it is a minor release, it contains two new features (including a long overdue one!) and some important bug fixes, like a fix for image pasting in Microsoft Edge. Read on for more information!

Link Plugin Improvements: Display Text

Thanks to Ryan Guill, since version 4.5.11 it will now be possible to specify the text displayed within the link. The new Display Text field added to the Link plugin dialog allows the user to provide or modify the text that is linked. What's interesting is that this new feature works on multiple elements, too!

As a matter of fact, this feature seems to have been badly missed since a long time and it is another amazing example of the community stepping in when some editor improvement somehow goes off the radar of the core team. Thanks again, Ryan!

Enhanced Image Plugin Improvement: Target Attribute

The Enhanced Image plugin that lets you create captioned image widgets also got a small improvement: from now it will have support for the link target attribute. You can now use the Target tab of the Link dialog to set the image to, for example, open its link in a new window or tab.

CKEditor Fixes

In addition to these new features, this release also contains a few important bug fixes. Pasting images directly from clipboard will now finally work in Microsoft Edge, too. Additionally, an annoying bug where closing a dialog in a <div>-based editor would cause the content to be scrolled in Blink-based browsers was fixed. Last but not least, another issue with unwanted scrolling in Edge when focusing the editor was also corrected.

Security Fix

We have fixed a minor security issue - a target="_blank" vulnerability reported by James Gaskell (a BIG thank you!). 

If a victim had access to a spoofed version of via HTTP (e.g. due to DNS spoofing, using a hacked public network or malicious hotspot), then when using a link to the website it was possible for the attacker to change the current URL of the opening page, even if the opening page was protected with SSL.

An upgrade is recommended.

    How to Save Thousands of Dollars in Interest and Pay Your Mortgage off Faster

    There are a few easy ways to make extra principle payments that can save you a ton of money in interest expenses and get you mortgage-free sooner than you thought possible. Here are a few simple strategies you can use:

    1. Round your monthly payment up

    The results of this simple strategy can save you a fortune and drastically reduce the length of your mortgage.

    As an example, if your monthly mortgage payments were $734 dollars a month, but you rounded it up to $800 per month, you would save more than $48,000 in interest payments, and reduce the length of your mortgage by 7.5 years!

    2. Make One Time Pre-Payments Using Your Income Tax Refund

    This is an easy way to save money and shorten your mortgage. For example, if you have a $100,000 mortgage, and you have a $1000 tax refund this year, you take apply that refund to your mortgage. Over time, this will save you more than $8600 and shave 1 year and 1 month off your mortgage! That's another amazing result from a simple strategy.

    3. Choose a 15 Year Mortgage

    If you can afford it, you are far better off getting a 15 year mortgage instead of 30. It won't cost you much more, and the interest savings are truly incredible.

    If you have a mortgage of $100,000 at 8% interest over 15 years, your monthly payment would be about $200 more, but you'd end up saving $92,083 in interest over the life of your mortgage!
