Take a look at the new features and other highlights in the Confluence 4.2 Release Notes.
Adding spaces quickly and simply
Confluence 4.2.3 introduces a quick 'Add Space' option at the top of the dashboard, which leads you to the new, simplified dialog for adding global spaces, shown below. Adding a personal space is even simpler.
Support for MySQL 5.5
Confluence 4.2 and later now support MySQL 5.5 as well as 5.1. See Supported Platforms. This announcement is retrospectively applicable to the Confluence 4.2 release.
Upgrading from a previous version of Confluence should be fairly straightforward. Please read the Confluence 4.2.3 Upgrade Notes. We strongly recommend that you back up your
confluence.home directory and database before upgrading.
If your version of Confluence is earlier than 3.5.x, then you should upgrade to Confluence 3.5.x before upgrading to Confluence 4.2.x.
