Community Bubbles 1.5.1 is a bug fix release and recommended upgrade for all users of the 1.5 release.

New and Notable

This release contains several bug fixes and improvements.

A new extractor has been added to the plugin in this release to add the contents of the {excerpt} macro to the search index. This now allows the {forum-summary} macro to correctly show the excerpts from the forum root pages.

Bubbles widgets can now use the space description as a replacement token.

Also in this release a bug that crept into the 1.5 release with displaying the in-built confluence profile images has been fixed.

Check out the Bubbles Jira project for more info on the issues resolved in this release.

Download and Installation

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.

New Installation

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.)

Reindexing Needed

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.

Upgrading from a previous release

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 the 1.5 release please note you will either need to run a full site reindex, or edit the specific pages you want to display in the forum summary macro to the the new excerpt field into the index.

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.
