Changes in Confluence 6.15

Release Candidate 1 - 6 March 2019

As updated last week, we've decided to roll back the change that would automatically copy page restrictions when you copy a single page.

Also, we've made a change to require any URLs shared via the Share a Link blueprint to be whitelisted. This is to prevent a user accidentally or maliciously sharing a link that may pose a threat to the site. 

Beta 2 - 27 February 2019

React now bundled with Confluence

We now bundle React@16.8.1 and React-DOM@16.8.1 with Confluence as AMD modules, but don’t load them by default.

If you want to use React for your app, you should declare dependency on the following web-resources to reduce the page weights:

com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.confluence-frontend:react
com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.confluence-frontend:react-dom

The latest version of the search plugin can't be installed in previous Confluence versions (6.14 or earlier).

Copy a page and its restrictions

When you copy a single page, its restrictions are now automatically copied too. Restrictions can be removed in the editor before publishing. 

UPDATE: we've discovered some problems with this change, and will be rolling it back in the release candidate. 

Translations not available for Backup and Restore yet

We've made a lot of changes to the backup and restore screen, and will have translations available for these changes very soon.  If you'd like a look at the changes, switch your profile language to English UK. 

New CQL space category filter

We've added a new space category filter to the search panel, which allows users to restrict their search to a particular space category.
