Atlassian presents Confluence 6.7.0-beta1 . This is 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 6.7.0-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.

Mentioning people just got easier (and faster)

One of the best ways to keep communication flowing is to mention people in pages and comments, but mentioning the right person can be quite laborious in a large organisation. 

Good news, user mentions just got smarter and faster! Type '@' and we'll suggest the people you've mentioned previously or who've contributed to the current page first. Keep typing and we'll continue to suggest matching people. Here's some examples to illustrate the improvements. 

Cassie is working on a project with Harvey, so she's been mentioning him a lot. Cassie types '@' and there's Harvey at the top, just after Cassie herself (because let's face it, we mention ourselves a lot too). 

Trinh wants to mention Emma on a planning page, so she starts typing '@em'. Because Emma is not one of Trinh's recent mentions, but has previously edited this page, she's marked as a contributor, which makes her easier to spot in the list. 

Previously we suggested the people in your network first (people you are following, or who are following you), but the reality is that the people you want mention will change based on what you're working on at the time. This is why we chose to prioritise the people you mention regularly over a static set of people you follow.

Oh, and it's a LOT faster too. 

Confluence gets a fresh, new look

We're bringing a refreshed look and feel to many of our Server and Data Center products, and Confluence is the first cab off the rank. This work is based on the new Atlassian design  and includes things like updated colours, typography and icons. Take a look...

We've not made any changes to navigation - your favourite features will be just where you left them. If you're using a custom theme, or have made your own look and feel changes, you may not see all of these changes. 

Other notable changes

YAML comes to the code block macro

The Code Block macro now includes syntax highlighting for YAML. 

Supported platforms changes

There are no supported platform changes planned for this release.
