Confluence 2.10.1 Release Notes

7 January 2009

Confluence 2.10.1 is a recommended upgrade which fixes some security flaws and other issues.

Please refer to the security advisory for details of the security vulnerabilities, risk assessment and mitigation strategies.

A bug was identified in Confluence version 2.10.0 that made the label parameter of the Content by Label Macro case-sensitive. This resulted in link breakages where differences existed in case usage between {contentbylabel} label parameter values and the page labels they referenced. However, this issue has now been fixed.

Another issue was identified in Confluence version 2.10.0 that prevented specific Confluence components (for example, those of the Rich Text Editor) from loading correctly when running Confluence behind certain proxy server configurations. For example, this may have become apparent when running Confluence behind an Apache HTTP Server using the mod_proxy connection module. This issue has also been fixed in Confluence version 2.10.1, along with a number of other issues.

There's a complete list of fixes below. Click a specific issue to see details of the fix.
