What's new this quarter in Confluence Server

Hello Atlassian Community!

My name is Ada, and I'm the Product Marketing Manager for Confluence Server at Atlassian. We're releasing new versions of Confluence faster than ever so you can take advantage of new features sooner. To adapt to our new fast-paced release cycle, we're transitioning to quarterly release newsletters so you can review all product updates in one, summarized digest. 

If you prefer more frequent version release updates, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

We are always looking to improve, so if you have comments or ideas on how we can better showcase recent releases, please let us know in the comments section below. 


Here's what's new in Confluence 6.7:


• Atlassian's bold new design guidelines are now available in Confluence! Complete your work against a refreshing backdrop of our new sleek colors, typography, and icons. Don't worry, we haven't made any changes to navigation – all your favorite features will be right where you expect them.

• We've made @mentions smarter by listing recent mentions and collaborators first. You can say buh-bye to the days of repetitive searches, long load time, and the dreaded feeling of @mentioning the wrong person #awkward. More info

@Ada Chen: Thanks Ada - I appreciate the feedback :-). I did see the webinar recording but it's not really great for a quick reference or a quick overview. Thanks anyway though.
