Confluence 4.2 launched
Faster. Richer. Simpler. A new standard in content collaboration. Take a brilliantly simple design, pack it full of rich editing features, make it lightning fast, and add a dash of social networking. Meet the future of content collaboration where new users are at ease and power users thrive.
Brilliantly Simple or Simply Brilliant
Built from the ground-up to meet the needs of every user, Confluence 4.0 breaks free from the restrictions of old-fashioned online editors. A new intuitive editing interface lets users create rich content with extraordinary speed and simplicity.
Intelligent and Fast
Taking full advantage of the power of the latest web technologies, Confluence 4.0 delivers innovative editing features, matched by no one, providing the fastest online editing experience ever.
Confluence 4.0 takes team collaboration to a new level with @mentions. Just like Twitter and Facebook, connecting users with content is quick, easy, and instant. You'll never be left out of another conversation again.
Share Content with @mentions
@mentions are a great way to notify other users about content and conversations they should be involved in. Best of all, they work just like Twitter and Facebook. When mentioned, users receive an email notification so they can jump right into Confluence and start contributing.
Type wiki markup and watch Confluence convert it to rich text, on the fly. Bold, italics, strikethrough, underline, headings, lists, emoticons, tables – it all works.
Three single keyboard shortcuts make it super quick to create links, embed images, media, documents, and insert powerful macros. Confluence puts rich content a couple of keystrokes away.
Whether you are just browsing, creating new, or editing existing content, Confluence has a shortcut to help you get the job done, fast.
Packed with Power
Confluence 4.0 puts more power in your hands. We've made working with macros and creating content rich pages incredible easy. Everyone can create and share beautifully rich pages, packed with dynamic content.
Friendly, Visual Macros
We've ditched the scary code and made working with macros more visual and intuitive. Just like images and links, click on a macro to make changes to its settings.
Paste, Re-size, and Link Images
Paste images straight into the editor from your clipboard – it's that simple. Click an image to quickly change its dimensions and link it to other content, within or outside Confluence.
Easy, Rich Table Editing
Insert new tables with drag-and-drop simplicity. Highlight and merge cells, rows, and columns. Add, remove, cut, and paste rows and columns.
Confluence 4.0 has been designed to allow for constant innovation and improvement. We've been working closely with our amazing partners to make sure they can take advantage of the power of the new editor. Add-ons like Gliffy and Ad hoc Workflows provide a more natural, richer, and intuitive experience in Confluence 4.0.
