10 April 2008: With great pleasure, the Atlassian Confluence team presents Confluence 2.8.
We have simplified the screen design to focus on content. There's a totally new menu structure for editing or adding content and many other actions. We've also grouped the menu functions so that they are easier to use and understand. This will help new users start using Confluence quickly. For our faithful customers, you may find existing features you didn't know Confluence had!
The much voted for page-ordering feature allows you to define the order of your wiki pages yourself --- just drag and drop your pages into the right position.
We've beautified the display of comments on pages and news items. With the multiple-label filter, you can combine more than one label in your label searches and surf labels directly via a sensible URL. Getting Confluence up and running is easier than ever with our new installer. An enhanced task list is bundled with Confluence, bringing faster response times and a simple yet powerful user interface.
There are some great performance enhancements, and a lot for administrators and developers too.
