Each app 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. Go to Version history in the Atlassian Marketplace to see which app version is compatible to the respective Confluence version.
Note: If you want to use the latest Release Info version you need to upgrade to the latest version of Confluence.
App versioning & Release strategy
Starting with app version 1.6.0 we use semantic versioning with
MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH for a comprehensible versioning scheme:
X = major version change
Only changes when huge changes were made like a complete rewrite of the codebase.
X.Y = minor version change
Indicates new features or compatibility changes to new Confluence version.
X.Y.Z = patch version change
Used for small changes like bug fixing but nothing changes regarding compatibility issues.
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.
