During the Atlassian Summit 2011 Keynote Day Two there was a demonstration of the new JIRA installer and I thought mentioned one also for Confluence even though in beta.
Does anyone have a pointer to the new Confluence installer?
I'm managing around eight Confluence instances right now (aside from JIRA and Crowd instances) so this exciting announcement spoke to me :)
The short answer is Coming Soon™
It's pretty common, when we develop something that is going to be deployed across multiple products, to pick a single product as a guinea pig. This allows us to focus on getting the feature "right" without also having to worry about a smorgasbord of compatibility and portability issues, and the release schedules of a dozen different teams.
For a variety of reasons, JIRA got to be the first product to benefit from the work of the installer team. The new installer for Confluence is currently under development (and the Confluence team got to see a demo of the latest prototype just last Friday), but we don't yet have a date for getting it into the hands of customers.
As you can imagine, installers are something we have to be very careful about letting out into the wild due to the catastrophic things they can do if they go wrong.
Hi Brendan. I'd like to re-iterate Charles' comment and add that we are providing the install and upgrade features incrementally as we progress toward Confluence 4.0.
Please continue to the check the release notes in the Confluence EAP downloads. We are currently working on the new Confluence install routine for both Linux and Windows and this should be available within the next 4-6 weeks. Next will be an upgradeable version of the same packages and several other improvements.
The Confluence 4.0 Beta2 installers are available, for Linux and Windows:
It's still a *beta* release, but looking good. :)
