Confluence 3.2.1 Release Notes
This release fixes some security flaws. Please refer to the security advisory for details of the security vulnerabilities, risk assessment and mitigation strategies.
4 May 2010
Confluence 3.2.1 is a recommended upgrade which fixes some security flaws and other bugs.
As part of the security update we have made changes to Confluence functionality, including some parts of the Administration Console. Please refer to the security advisory for a summary of changed behavior. We have updated the documentation where relevant.
We have also fixed a bug that caused an out of memory error when attempting to display an Excel spreadsheet on a Confluence page. Before this fix, the error might occur if the spreadsheet has a large number of empty cells. Confluence now limits the number of spreadsheet cells it will display. By default, the maximum is 10000 cells. The Confluence administrator can adjust this value in the Office Connector configuration screen, as described in the documentation.
Purging items from a space's trash can was very slow and blocked all other database updates. This is now fixed.
A bug introduced in Confluence 3.2 prevented people from adding a page when using the Left Navigation theme. We have fixed this too.
In Confluence 3.2, we mistakenly introduced the words 'Needs to be updated' into the French and German translations of the UI text in the left navigation theme. We have now removed the extra text. The UI wording is still in English, not translated into French or German, but at least it no longer calls attention to this fact.
