Community Bubbles 1.6.2 is a bug fix release

New and Notable

This release fixes a formatting issue with the forum macro and the Google Chrome browser. An issue with indexing of forum pages during a full site reindex has also been fixed.

As part of the updates for this release the requirement to agree to the EULA upon installation has been removed.

This release has also been tested against the recent Confluence 3.3 release. (Some automated test code required updates to support the new Confluence version, but there are no functionality fixes.)

In the Confluence 3.3 release some functionality within the plugin such as managing page watchers is now duplicated. This functionality within the Bubbles plugin can now be considered deprecated. It will turned off by default / removed in a future version.

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

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 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 a 1.5.x release or earlier please note you will need to run a full site reindex after install to use some of the new features.

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.
