Today we announced the release of Confluence 3.1, the latest edition of Atlassian’s enterprise wiki. We wrote a blog post about the full list of features on the dedicated Confluence Blog, but here’s a quick summary:

  • OpenSocial gadgets: Confluence 3.1 lets you embed Gadgets from other Atlassian tools like Jira, Bamboo and Fisheye directly into Confluence pages. And because OpenSocial is an open standard, you can use Gadgets to integrate with 3rd party applications behind the firewall and thousands of applications on the web.
  • Drag and Drop your attachments: The new Drag-and-Drop feature makes sharing files in Confluence a snap. A couple weeks ago, Matt posted a fantastic video of the magic drag and drop feature in action — by far my favorite feature in 3.1.
  • Complete Office 2007 Support: Confluence’s Office integration just got even better with complete Office 2007 support.
  • Core editing improvements: We’ve redesigned some of Confluence’s core editing features so it’s even easier to rapidly create, edit and organise your pages.
