Team Calendars 5.5.0 Release Notes
09 Jan 2018
Welcome to Team Calendars 5.5.0. This release contains bug fixes and performance improvements.
This version is no longer available to download
In Team Calendars 5.5.0 we made some changes to recurring events. These changes introduced a serious bug that may impact your Confluence site.
If you have Team Calendars 5.5.0 - 6.0.1, and you attempt to delete a recurring event, duplicates are created in the database, which can cause performance problems and out of memory errors when viewing a calendar, because the duplicates are loaded back into memory when the calendar is re-loaded.
We recommend upgrading the Team Calendars for Confluence add-on to 6.0.14 or later to avoid being affected by this issue.
More flexibility for recurring events
In this release we've made some big improvements to recurring events.
You can now set your event to:
- repeat on particular days each week, for example every Tuesday and Thursday
- repeat on a particular day each month, for example the second Wednesday
- stop repeating after a specified number of times, rather than on a specific date.
The option to repeat on workdays has been removed to keep the repeat options nice and simple. If you want an event to repeat on weekdays, simply choose Weekly, then select each working day.
Update Team Calendars
Before completing this update process, we recommend you back up your Confluence database (which includes Team Calendars data).
- Choose > Add-ons
- Choose Update to the right of the Team Calendars entry
If you encounter any problems in the update process, you can downgrade by installing the version of Team Calendars you were running previously (also available from the Marketplace).
