Confluence Documentation Theme - Upgrade question

Hello

We use "Documentation theme" https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.doctheme for confluence.

The site says it only supports to 4.1.1 , does that mean I am stuck in the year old version? Since this is a quite a popular plugin are all the users who use this plugin should stay at the older version of confluence and not upgrade?

Please let me know what I should do to upgrade to current version of confluence.

Thanks

Abe

There is a documentation theme bundled with Confluence already. I do not know how it compares, but it worth a look.

Here is the link for the 4.3 release verses future releases. This double documentation is a real pain.

I found this note, so now I feel really confident to state the documentation theme is bundled with Confluence now.

The Documentation theme is bundled with Confluence 3.2
The Documentation theme is shipped as part of Confluence 3.2 and later. See the guides to configuring the theme and using the theme.

I've got this same issue. Abraham, did you figure out how to resolve it?

I did not have to change anything the included theme worked for me... Are you using custom themes?

I am currently at Confluence 4.0 and would like to upgrade to a more current version. The compatibility checker in Confluence says that the Documentation Theme is not compatible with Confluence 4.1.2 onwards. If I disable the Documentation Theme in Confluence 4.0 our spaces (most of them) that use that theme no longer render properly. Thoughts?
