How are you enjoying Confluence 5.8?

High fives accepted here wink

Seriously though, we love hearing from you so we've asked this question to give you an easy place to tell us what you think about the new stuff in Confluence 5.8 (or just to point out that annoying typo in the release notes that's driving you a little bit crazy).

Need a recap? Confluence 5.8 has:

  • Full screen presentation mode for files
  • Ability to restore deleted files from the trash
  • CQL based search for Page Properties Report and Content by Label macros
  •  Week view for Roadmap planner macro
  • Better handling of inline comments with lots of replies
  • Index recovery for data center nodes.

I can't believe this never got an answer, so maybe I could throw in my opinion.

I am really happy to see a few features being thrown in that make administrators lives much easier, such as the ability to restore deleted files.  Now it is much easier for admins to give attachment delete rights to users instead of worrying whether they will accidentally delete something that can't be recovered without going to backups or having to instead answer requests from users for deleting attachments.

I'm not sure if it's gained much traction yet, but I think the new CQL based search for filtering in macros is pretty awesome.  I think it will make a lot of macros much more powerful and help filter users to the information they are looking for.  I hope it finds its way into more macros!  It will be nice to see some more documentation for developers as well.

The other options are just icing on the cake.  Looking forward to what you have in store next! (and I hope you get a few more replies!)
