Take a look at the new features and other highlights in the Confluence 4.3 Release Notes.

Excerpt Include macro across spaces

The Excerpt Include macro can now include content from another space. When you type the name of the page into the Excerpt Include macro dialog, Confluence will offer a list of matching pages, including those from other spaces.

Alternatively, you can type the space key followed by a colon (:) and the page name, like this:

Ability to nest Expand macros

You can now put one Expand macro inside another, and Confluence will correctly show and hide the contents of all Expand macros, including the nested ones. Here is an example.

More macros in Confluence mobile

We have made a large number of macros compatible with Confluence mobile. This means that many more macros will now work as expected when you access a page on your iPhone or iPad.

The following macros work in Confluence mobile:

Are you using the Zen Foundation theme? All the Zen macros work in Confluence mobile now too.

For plugin developers – making your macros work in Confluence mobile

Have you written a Confluence macro as a plugin? In Confluence 4.3.2 and later, you can make your macros work in Confluence mobile. For many macros there is little effort involved. Confluence mobile will render a macro if it contains a device type specification of "mobile". For more complex macros, you may need to convert the CSS and JavaScript too. Details are in this document: Making your macro render in Confluence mobile.

Release notices

Upgrading from a previous version of Confluence should be fairly straightforward. Please read the Confluence 4.3.2 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 4.3.x.
