A better way to edit files
Confluence already lets you upload a wide range of files to share and discuss with your team. We’ve now made it easier to make changes to your files without the hassle of downloading and uploading multiple times.
You can now edit any file attached to a Confluence page using a desktop application, then save the file back to Confluence in a few clicks. And it’s not just available for Microsoft Office documents; it works for Photoshop files, Keynote presentations — any attached file with a compatible application installed on your computer.
This feature replaces the Edit in Office function, which had some tricky limitations. It was restricted to Microsoft Office documents and only worked if you had the right browser, operating system and app combo running.
Read more in our guide to editing files.
Easier ways to generate support zips
We've made it easier for you to create support zips from your site. A new REST API allows you to generate a support zip, and then download the zip remotely. You can even generate support zips from multiple nodes in your Data Center cluster with a single request.
We hope that this API will save a huge amount of time when you're investigating an issue, and also opens up opportunities for automating support zip generation.
More supported databases
In this release we've added support for
- Oracle 12c Release 2 (12.2.x)
- Microsoft SQL Server 2017
For full details of bugs fixed and suggestions resolved, head to JIRA.
We recommend you upgrade to the most recent 7.x LTS version.
