Upgrading to 7.3.x soon. On 6.9.x. How was your end-user transition experience?

Good day.

We have been on Server, by the way, and that's not changing. By the way, I have much sympathy for those I've seen on here that are frustrated with Atlassian puts out many announcements that are specific to Cloud, and almost none about Server.

I'm an end user, by the way, not a server admin.

We're staging the 7 version, and when I compare them I'm seeing remarkable little difference. I'm guessing that why my employer is upgrading has mostly to do with back-end stuff.

In terms of information out there actually from Atlassian that relates to our transition, the best I've been able to find is:

Confluence 7.0 beta release notes 


End of Support Announcements

I think a jump from 5.x.x to 7.x.x. has been more common, but if you can speak to the transition we'll be making from an end-user point of view, please reply here. Thank you.

We also use server and will not be moving off of it.  The best place to find out what changes have been made are in the release notes.  You are correct in that there have only been subtle changes made for the end users in the last few server releases.  There have been some great enhancements for maintenance and performance.  You can check out all the changes here:  


What I was looking to know was not so much on the page for which you gave the link, but it did link to pages that did have what I was looking for, more or less.

Thank you!
