Atlassian presents Confluence 6.2.0-RC1. This is the release candidate for Confluence 6.2 and a snapshot of our work in progress, primarily focused on providing add-on developers an opportunity to test their add-ons and make any required changes in advance of an official release.

Confluence 6.2.0-RC1 is available to download now.

Development releases are not production ready. Development releases are snapshots of the ongoing Confluence development process. While we try to keep these releases stable, they have not undergone the same degree of testing as a full release, and could contain features that are incomplete or may change or be removed before the next full release.

No upgrade path. Because development releases represent work in progress, we cannot provide a supported upgrade path between development releases, or from any development release to a final release. You may not be able to migrate any data you store in a Confluence development release to a future Confluence release.

Atlassian does not provide support for development releases.

Invite your team to edit with you 

Working on a page and could use some help?  Invite your team mates to edit the page with you, without leaving the editor. 

You can enter someone's name, their email address or invite the members of a group. They'll get a notification and be taken straight into the editor. The page doesn't need to be published - you can invite people to edit unpublished draft pages too. 

Alternatively you can simply grab the link and share it via chat, text, carrier pigeon, it's totally up to you.



Resolve permission roadblocks faster

Space permissions and page restrictions are an inevitable part of many Confluence sites. Inviting someone won't automatically grant them permissions to edit the page, so to make sure your team can get on the same page, we've made a few changes. 

  • If you're invited to edit a page that is restricted for editing you can now request access.
  • If you're invited to edit a page, but don't have Add permission in that space, we'll give you a link to a list of space admins so you know who to contact next.



One thing hasn't changed however - if someone doesn't have permission to view the space, we won't reveal any info about the space. They'll simply see a page not found error when they follow the link. 

Share with ease

Want to share a page without using email? It has never been easier to grab a link to a page and paste it into your favourite chat or productivity tool.  Hit Share when viewing a page to grab the link.


We speak your language

Confluence customers come from every corner of the globe, and we we know that poor translations can make learning and using Confluence challenging, so we're working hard to improve the quality of our language packs. 

In this release we've improved our translations for French, German, Russian and Spanish, plus added brand new language packs for:

  • Finnish
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Romanian

Expect to see more language improvements over the next few releases.
