Confluence 2.6.1 Upgrade Guide

9 November 2007

Atlassian is proud to announce the release of Confluence 2.6.1. This is a highly recommended upgrade from 2.6, because it fixes some security flaws which may affect Confluence instances in a public environment. We will release more details of the security fixes within a few days, giving our customers a chance to upgrade before the details are made public. This point release also includes more than 40 other fixes and improvements.

We're especially glad that anonymous comments will no longer show the profile picture of the previous commenter, and newly-created spaces no longer seem to have been created by an anonymous user. The {excerpt} and {excerpt-include} macros now behave better. And we've fixed some issues with internationalization.

Upgrade Procedure

If you are already running a version of Confluence, please follow these instructions to upgrade to the latest version:

  1. Before you upgrade, we strongly recommend that you back up your confluence.home directory and database.

  2. If your version of Confluence is earlier than 2.6.0, read the release notes and upgrade guides for all releases between your version and the latest version. In particular:
  3. Download the latest version of Confluence.

  4. Follow the instructions in the Upgrade Guide.
