App compatibility

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.
