It’s with mucho excitement that we announce the availability of Confluence 3.1 Beta 2 for download.

Please note that this Beta is for testing purposes only, and should NOT be installed on production systems.

What’s all the fuss about?
Beta 2 has all the features of Beta 1, and on top of that we have enabled Google Gears integration, allowing you to drag files onto your browser to attach them to your Confluence pages. With the new Drag and Drop feature in Confluence 3.1 you can:

  1. Attach multiple files onto a page when viewing the attachments page
  2. Attach multiple files onto a page when in view mode
  3. Attach multiple files onto a page when in edit mode
  4. Embed Office Documents (inc. Office 2007 files) and PDF’s when in edit mode
  5. Embed multiple images onto a page when in edit mode
  6. Cancel individual file uploads

Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
