We have just upgraded to Confluence 3.5.16. I am testing it with IE9. When I try to drag 'n drop an attachment to a page, Confluence prompts me with:
"To enable drag-and-drop, you need to install Google Gears. Confluence has detected that you do not have it installed. Would you like to proceed to the website to install it now?"
I understood that Google Gears was deprecated in Confluence 3.5 and that drag 'n drop should work through Html5.
Please can anyone explain this?
The Google Gears requirement is browser dependent rather than Confluence version dependent. Have a look at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+Drag-and-Drop+in+Confluence for details, basically Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 don't support HTML drag and drop and therefore require Google Gears.
Hope that helps?
