Confluence 1.3-DR3 is the third of our experimental Development Releases on the road to 1.3. These snapshot builds let us deliver features more regularly to people who don't mind being on the bleeding edge, give customers early access to features they may have been waiting months for, or just let you guys see how the next major Confluence release is shaping up.

While we make an effort to ensure that we're in a stable and releasable state in time for each DR build, development releases may contain unfinished features, or interesting bugs. If you don't want to follow the development releases yourself, we'll be running the most recent DR build on on http://confluence.atlassian.com/. (We're also running our private extranet on DR3. We don't release anything we wouldn't run ourselves.)

It has been pointed out to us that the bicubic image scaling hint that we use in Confluence 1.2.1 is in fact ignored by all JDK's prior to version 5.0. The sole exception is Mac OS X. As such, customers upgrading to 1.2.1 will only see increased thumbnail quality if:

  1. You are running Confluence on JDK 5.0 (not recommended, since it's still a pre-release, and we haven't tested Confluence in this configuration)
  2. You are running Confluence on JDK 1.4.2 on Mac OS X

We apologise for the error.

Confluence 1.2.1 is a maintenance release that fixes some bugs that users may have encountered using Confluence 1.2. It incorporates improvements to performance for large Confluence installations; and fixes bugs related to the remote API, over-use of disk space, and a few annoying errors users were experiencing when setting up a new Confluence instance.

Confluence 1.2 is now available for download. Confluence 1.2 features an enhanced search interface, new ways to explore the content of spaces, threaded comments, image thumbnails and galleries, a new permissions interface, and a raft of additional improvements and bug fixes.

Be sure to read the release notes for upgrade instructions and a detailed run-down of all the new features.

Confluence 1.1 is now available for download. Confluence 1.1 features several new features including attachment versioning, WebDAV support and page-level locking, as well as many bug-fixes and performance enhancements. Be sure to read the release notes for a comprehensive list of new features, and upgrade instructions.

Confluence 1.0.3 is available for download. It's another point-release on the 1.0 branch, containing a bugfixes related to Postgresql support, the remote API, and the display of the site's stylesheet under certain versions of Internet Explorer 6.

1.0.3 is a recommended upgrade for anyone running a public Confluence site, as the IE6 stylesheet bug can really mess up the Confluence experience for those users effected. However, if you don't feel that the issues fixed for the release are going to cause you problems, there's no pressing need to upgrade from 1.0.2.

Also a warning to anyone still running 1.0.1: You MUST UPGRADE to 1.0.2 soon, to avoid being hit by the same license bug that caused 1.0 installations to fail. Alternatively, you can use the workaround described below to change your installation's build-date, and fool the bug into continuing to function:

We don't anticipate any more point-releases on the 1.0 branch, as we feel it's more important now to work towards 1.1, which will contain a lot of the bug-fixes that were too high-impact for 1.0, as well as lots of nifty new features.

Jon Lipsky has been doing some wonderful work on a Confluence client recently (see his blog entry and the XMLFace examples page for screenshots and webstartable versions).

Although primarily intended as an example of using his companies' XMLFace library (an XML gui definition library which allows you to generate Swing and SWT interfaces) it is actually quite a useful Confluence rich client. It doesn't yet have TimTam's sexy tree view, but it does work with Swing (albeit with an ugly HTML renderer) and support searching across all spaces - neat!

A critical bug in 1.0 that stopped users from being able to edit a page has now been fixed in version 1.0.2. You can download this latest version from here.

We suggest that you also quickly scan through the release notes for 1.0.1 as these fixes are included in 1.0.2 (particularly if you have delegated user management to LDAP or JIRA).

Confluence 1.0.1 is now available for download. This is a maintenance release, and is recommended for users who wish to resolve certain specific issues such as Sybase support, space visibility in global reports, direct attachment linking and external user management performance. Be sure to read the release notes before deciding whether you need to upgrade.

A lot of users have been asking us how get the best out of using JIRA and Confluence together in a team. We came up with four ways to get them working well together.

One of our users has written up his Confluence experiences on his blog under the title Confluence rules the known world. Now I think the title may be a little over the top, but it's a solid review nonetheless.

Confluence has allowed me to setup what will be a very complex site in a very short time. It is slick, very professional looking and easy to use. The installation of it was fairly painless as well.
