Versioning Scheme

Starting with 1.6.0 we now use Semantic Versioning. This means:

  • X = major version change: Which changes only when huge changes appear like a complete rewrite of codebase.

  • X.Y = minor version change: Indicates new features or compatibility with new Confluence Version.

  • X.Y.Z = patch version change: Used when only fixing bugs but nothing changes in regards to compatibility issues.


Release Strategy

The Release Strategy is Roll-Forward meaning:

  • Bugfixes will not be backported and only included in new releases.

  • Features will not be backported and only included in new releases.



Each specific Plugin Version is only compatible to a certain range of Confluence Versions! This is due to the Rollforward-Release-Strategy and the ever changing Plugin-API provided by Confluence.

You can see which plugin version is compatible to which Confluence Version in either:

If you want to use the latest plugin version you need to upgrade to the latest version of Confluence.

I always try to be as fast as I can to provide a version compatible to the latest Confluence version. But since there are from time to time big API changes that force me to reimplement certain GUI features or under-the-hood features this might take its time.
