No, Confluence server does NOT have the new UI. It has an updated look and feel, in line with the style changes Atlassian have made to their sites and applications, but not the new layout you see on Cloud, which is what this question is about. Jira also has the updated look and feel.
Ok, sorry for not being specific enough.
Regarding JIRA: I installed the newest JIRA server version, but it still has the old look and feel.
Are you sure JIRA has the new look and feel? Or am i doing something wrong (I also could not find this update in the jira-software-release-notes)
It looks like this:
It looks like this:
Now since you are telling me, that JIRA also has the new look and feel, it looks like i made a mistake and "deactivated" the new look and feel.
However, i could not find such a setting and could also find the steps to enable it in the documentation.
Am i doing something wrong here, or is the new look and feel only available for confluence server and not for JIRA server?
Actually, this is a positive from my organizations view. We were forced onto the new Cloud UI and people hate it. Even at this stage, people are still struggling in trying to navigate it. I don't think Atlassian did enough customer outreach or polling at the end of the opt-in period.
For us, we're moving to Jira Server primarily for other reasons, but when this was announced in a room of Jira users there was cheering.
There's no planned date to move server to the new UI you see on Cloud.
Hopefully, it will only happen after Atlassian fix the problems that are being reported with the new UI.
Personally, I find Cloud pretty much unusable now and avoid it like the plague, and it's notable that we are no longer doing any server-to-cloud migrations with people, it's all Cloud-to-server.
@Alessandro Tondo- I'm afraid you've misunderstood that.
The new look and feel mentioned in 7.10 is a change of colours, icons, branding and so-on.
The discussion here is about the new UI layout found on Cloud. Which is a matter of contention (Cloud is very much losing customers because of it, and even some of us fan-boys despise it - I simply don't recommend Cloud to anyone now, for several reasons, the UI being a significant one). Fortunately, it's not coming to server any time soon.
Most users I talk to find the Cloud UI to be awful. I tend to agree, as I didn't have to explain the Server UI to anyone, but now find myself in training sessions doing nothing but teaching the new UI and getting lots of questions like "why can't I find/do x" and "why is it so bad?"
