Preparing for Confluence releases

If you're developing for Confluence, it's important to keep up to date with changes that may affect your add-ons (also known as apps).

About the Early Access Program (EAP)

EAP releases provide a snapshot of our work-in-progress and give you an opportunity to test and fix your add-ons before the final release. EAP releases are not production-ready, and should only be used for testing purposes.

We release a milestone version of Confluence each week, containing our work in progress, followed by a beta and release candidate. We release a new feature version of Confluence approximately every 7 weeks.

Finding out about a new EAP release

We'll post an announcement in the Developer Community announcements category when the first EAP milestone for a new release is available to download.

The easiest way to be notified about new EAP releases is to watch the Announcements channel.

If you've subscribed to the Developers Updates list in my.atlassian.com (under Email Preferences) we'll also send you an email a few days after a beta is released.

Preparing for the new release

To find out what changes are planned for an upcoming release, head to Confluence Development Releases.

These pages are updated weekly, after we release a new milestone.

We'll provide as much prior notice as possible, and will let you know if it looks like a feature will slip to a later release.

If you have questions or concerns about any upcoming changes, the best way to let us know is to use the Feedback button on the Confluence header. It's available in all EAP milestones.
