Confluence 4.0 Beta 2 is a snapshot of our work in progress, primarily focused on allowing Confluence users to see the new features in advance. This also provides Atlassian with useful feedback. Beta releases also give plugin developers an opportunity to test and fix their plugins in advance of an official release.
This release contains minor fixes only. Please see the fixes and improvements reported in the Confluence 4.2-Beta1 Release Notes.
Upgrading from a previous version of Confluence
Follow the usual upgrade instructions to upgrade your test instance to this release. We strongly recommend that you back up your Confluence Home directory and your database before upgrading.
A big thank you to everyone who helps us ensure that Confluence keeps getting better and better!
