Easier access to your drafts

Started working on a new page, but weren't quite ready to hit publish? We call these unpublished pages drafts, and up until now, getting back to them has been a bit of a challenge.

Now, you can find any draft that you've created or edited under Recently worked on in the dashboard. No more hunting through the drafts list in your profile, or leaving that browser tab open until you have time to go back and finish it off. 

Close the loop on unfinished work

All too often we start updating an existing page, but don't quite get around to publishing the changes. These changes then lay unfinished and forgotten. Not anymore, a handy unpublished changes lozenge now appears next to the page in your Recently worked on, and when viewing the page, to remind you about your unfinished work. 

Don't worry, only people who have contributed to the unpublished changes will see the lozenge. Your page viewers remain blissfully unaware that changes are in the works. 

So, what are you waiting for? Head to Recently worked on to get that outstanding work finished.

Small improvements to make your day

Page history

The page history now shows both the avatar and name of the people who edited a version. 

Performance Testing Framework

You can now use the Performance Testing Framework to run experiments in your own environment. Previously you could only run experiments in AWS. 

Mimic real-world Confluence user behavior using the Atlassian Performance Testing Framework to spin up a Confluence Data Center instance and throw a repeatable workload at it. You can specify different versions of Confluence, or different cluster configurations and compare throughput, response times, and other vital statistics side-by-side.
