18 February 2009Confluence 2.10.2 is a recommended upgrade which fixes a security flaw and other issues.
Please refer to the security advisory for details of the security vulnerability, risk assessment and mitigation strategies.
Rich Text Editor fixes
A bug was identified in Confluence version 2.10, which affected the Rich Text Editor in Internet Explorer browsers. This bug prevented new content that was entered into a single line break between existing chunks of text from being saved. For instance, if a user placed their cursor on a single blank line (or line break) between two existing sections of text, entered new text (consisting of any number of paragraphs) and saved it, the new text would not be saved. This issue has now been fixed.
Another issue was identified in the Rich Text Editor which made text appearing immediately under an image concatenate with the image's Wiki Markup when the page content was saved. This prevented the image from being displayed. While inserting an additional line break between the image and text provided a workaround, this issue has now been fixed and this workaround is no longer required.
Content by Label Macro fixes
A bug was identified in the Content by Label Macro that prevented its sort parameter from functioning correctly. However, this has now been fixed. Furthermore, the performance of the Content by Label Macro has been improved.
With the release of Confluence 2.10, the default behaviour of the Content by Label Macro's space parameter was modified to @self. Due to customer feedback and popular demand, however, we reverted this parameter's default behaviour back to @all.
A stability issue was identified in Confluence version 2.10 which has now been fixed. However, a minor side effect has been identified which can result in some superfluous non-breaking spaces not being removed from the end of lines, when either saving a page or switching from the Rich Text Editor to Wiki Markup modes.
A bug was identified in Confluence version 2.10 that prevented Confluence from playing SWF files with Flash Player 10 in Internet Explorer. This has now been fixed.
Some issues were identified with the Code Block Macro in Confluence 2.10, which resulted in the removal of white space within a code block when switching from Wiki Markup to Rich Text Editor modes. However, a fix was introduced to mitigate these issues.
An issue was identified when, which prevented Confluence from listing pages by specific letters of the alphabet when 1,000 or more pages started with any one letter of the alphabet. This issue has now been fixed.
When writing content in Wiki Markup, URLs containing accented characters now render correctly into links. Additionally, Confluence's French and German product interface translations have been improved.
