With the recent release of Confluence 3.5, Atlassian’s wiki and collaboration tool, we made it even easier for users to create and embed rich content in Confluence pages. With support for Drag and Drop in HTML 5 browsers, a new Multimedia Macro, and a vastly improved Code Macro, users can create and share richer content, faster.

Check out the short video below to see the features in action and keep reading for more details.


1. Embed Audio and Video. Just Drag and Drop.

If you’re using an HTML5 browser like Safari 5, Firefox 3.6+, or Chrome, you can now take advantage of Drag and Drop for attaching files and documents to Confluence. Try dragging documents, images, and even multimedia – Flash, Quicktime, Windows Media etc – straight from your Desktop into the Confluence Rich Text Editor.

Dragging a multimedia file into the Confluence Rich Text Editor does two things:

  1. Attaches the file to the page
  2. Embeds the file into the page for playback using the Multimedia Macro

Whether you’re looking for feedback, or just want to share something interesting, Confluence makes it quick and easy to share content with the rest of your team.


2. An Extended, Better Looking Code Macro

The all-new and improved Code Macro, let’s you share snippets of code – HTML, C++, Java, Python, Ruby, and more. Choose from 20 different syntax highlighting options, toggle the display of line numbers, and apply a code theme like Emacs. There are dozens of combinations to choose from, making it really easy to share and document snippets of frequented code with your team.


But Wait, There’s More…

These are just a few of the many new features in Confluence 3.5. The release also delivers deeper integration with our bug and Issue tracker, Jira, and a bunch of features that helps your team share and discover content in Confluence.
