    Many on these boards use ckeditor, so I just thought you guys should know that CKEditor 4 was released! :)
    It's now capable of html5 inline editing, has a cool new skin and plugins repository. Might be worth an update:

    Thanks for posting this, I use CKeditor in Drupal via WYSIWYG module and maybe this latest has been ported or will be soon. The new editing experience is pretty interesting. The older version works well if you set it up so custom formats that call CSS classes or ID's can be selected and applied. For example a format called "Our special header", highlight some text to apply, and it wraps a span tag or div and applies CSS class "specialHeader" which renders based on an external stylesheet.

    From what I understand there will be a Drupal module soon for v4. And yes, the styles are pretty cool.

    As far as I can see ckeditor is serious about using proper internet standards, probably that's why the default download doesn't include the alignment and font size tools. I think it is better to set those things by the site's styles, which can be defined in the editor.
