Any idea when the SharePoint Connector will work with Confluence 4.0?

We are having to make a 3.5 versus 4.0 decision now and it would be good to make that decision with some idea when we can connect Confluence to SharePoint.

Hi Roy – we plan to release a Confluence 4.0 compatible version of the SharePoint Connector by the end of the year. We'll be sure to publish a blog post and email our customers as soon as it's available.

Thanks, Matt! Very helpful.

I dont know. But definitely I am waiting for it. Since our company uses Sharepoint i would like to make a good point to move forward with Confluence instead of Share-nightmare-Point.

At the moment there is no ETA for the next version of Sharepoint connector, the latest release has just been delivered in the 20th of September, so I believe it will take a while until the developer rolls out a new iteration of the plugin.

I advise you to monitor the Sharepoint Connector page - https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/235 to stay up to date with it's latest news.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the quick response, Guilherme, but there really isn't any useful information here.

I don't need to know a specific date, just a strategic time frame (before the end of the year, 1st quarter 2011, etc.). I know this may seem nutty in an Agile world, but anybody who is trying to connect Confluence to SharePoint is already used to a world where software vendors inform their customers of their strategic intent. It helps large companies make their strategic decisions. In this case, a large company needs to know whether to start their Wiki life on Confluence 3.5 with a connector to SharePoint, or start their Wiki life on Confluence 4.0 and hope that the SharePoint Connector catches up quickly. Large companies don't like making decisions based on "hope". So again, and "idea" or general timeframe is all we need.

BTW - who is "the developer" of whom you speak? Is the SharePoint Connector not an Atlassian product?

"the developer" is me. :-)
