Preparing for Confluence 6.5


This documentation is intended for Confluence developers who want to ensure that their existing plugins and add-ons are compatible with Confluence 6.5.

We plan to release frequent milestones during the development of Confluence 6.5. Watch this page to find out when a new milestone is available and what's changed.  We won't be publishing formal release notes over at Development Releases until we release a beta.

Milestone 8 - 18 September

We've made some changes to our Support Tools. When you upgrade Confluence to 6.5.0-m08 or later:

  • the following plugins will be uninstalled:
    • Confluence Required Health Checks Plugin
    • Confluence Healthcheck plugin
    • Support Healthcheck Plugin

    • Support Tools Plugin
  • a new plugin called Atlassian Troubleshooting and Support Tools will be installed.

You can find the new Troubleshooting and support tools under  > Troubleshooting and support tools.  The functionality of the plugin (health checks, log analyzer, support zip etc) has not changed.

Milestone 4 - 12 September

This is our first public milestone for Confluence 6.5. Not much has changed yet, but keep an eye on this page, as we'll be releasing a milestone every week in the lead up to Confluence 6.5.  

  • Improved email threading. Confluence will group all the email notifications about changes to a specific page together. Other notifications such as sharing a page, or requesting access to a page are not grouped.

New Azure deployment template for Confluence Data Center

Our new Azure deployment template is ready for you to take for a test drive. The template makes provisioning a new Confluence Data Center cluster in Microsoft Azure simple. Head to Getting started with Confluence Data Center in Azure to find out how it works.

We've still got some work to do, including an app for the Azure marketplace, but we'd love your feedback on our work so far, so raise an issue to tell us what you think.
