Hey Atlassian where is Confluence development? Edited

Several latest release notes looks like joke. Nothing added and minor fixes.

No visual refresh for latest years.

Is project discontinued ?

There has been a major release (7) come out this year with some significant under the hood changes. The UI for all products have been progressing towards ADG3 (Atlassian Design Guidelines) 

A stable UI for a product is not a bad thing, functionality, performance, security and flexibility can all change while having a consistent interface. for the Confluence 7 release notes.

@Aleksey_Shirokih  This is not really the case, the feature delivery per release have reduced but if you will look carefully you will see that releases are more frequent. This is beauty of Agile.

| Release | Release Date |
| 7.0.1 | 10 September |
| 7.0.2 | 01 October |
| 7.0.3 | 15 October |
| 7.0.4 | 28 October |
| 7.0.5 | 12 December |
| 7.1.0 | 04 November |
| 7.1.1 | 02 December |
| 7.1.2 | 12 December |
| 7.2.0 | 12 December |

Hi. they are frequent but empty from features side.

i have to protect payments for confluence every year since 2012. And finds that is much harder to do recent years.

For me it seems that the are at most two people writing confluence server on day to day basis.

About  bugs pretty interesting situation, as they (I mean vendor) can deliver faster bugfixes 


@Sergey_Papurin @DPK_J  @Craig_Castle-Mead  Are you in for the review exist queue of features and get constructive feedback to the vendor? 


Hope it helps
