Adaptavist are excited to present the latest free release of the Community Bubbles plugin.

You can view all the bugs fixed in this release in the Jira project for this plugin here
This release of the Community Bubbles plugin supports Confluence 2.10.2 and later.
You can download this release from the Atlassian Marketplace (click on the previous versions link to see all files) or install from the plugin repository.
Even though this version of the plugin does not require a license to run, you still need to accept the End User License Agreement after installation for the first time before you can use any of the functionality of the plugin. (This is available from the admin console after you have installed the plugin.)
If this is the first release of the Bubbles plugin that is being installed into a Confluence instance you will need to rebuild the search index after installing to use some of the new features. If you are going to enable the new Activity Score functionality for forum topics it would be advisable to set this up first as this will also require an index rebuild.
You can easily upgrade from a previous version of Bubbles by uninstalling the old version and uploading the new version into your Confluence instance. Or you can upgrade via the plugin repository. You configuration and settings will automatically be picked up by the new version.
If you are upgrading from a release before 1.2 please refer to the 1.2 release notes for information on updates to the forum macro that were included in that release.
If you have any questions about the functionality in this plugin, find a bug, or have suggestions about how features could be improved please let us know via the Bubbles Forum Archive in this space. The free release of this plugin is covered by our general community support.
Commercial support customers can also create issues in the Bubbles Support Project (USUP) in the Adaptavist Tracker for any issues encountered while using the plugin. Please contact Adaptavist if you want more information about commercial support for this and other plugins.
