Confluence 3.4.8 is a bug-fix release.
This release adds OpenOffice MIME type handling capabilities to Confluence file uploads. Hence, if you now upload any OpenOffice file to Confluence and then download it, the file will be downloaded with the correct file extension instead of
We also fixed a bug in the spaces list macro, which caused this macro to fail on Confluence instances with large numbers of spaces.
Finally, if your Confluence site was started with the
password.confirmation.disabled system property set to false, a bug in Confluence prevented site administrators from saving configuration changes made to any of the fields on the Edit Security Configuration page. This bug, which has now been resolved, will most likely only affect Confluence sites configured with a custom authenticator.

Upgrading from a previous version of Confluence should be fairly straightforward. Please read the Confluence 3.4.8 upgrade notes. We strongly recommend that you back up your
confluence.home directory and database before upgrading.
