Note: AUI 7.6.2 was originally released on June 12, and due to various customer issues, we have decided to rollback the AUI 7 upgrade to reduce further customer impact. We will re-release AUI 7.6.2 on a later date once we improve upon our internal testing process for marketplace apps. Thank you for your patience.
Hi developer community,
We’re in the process of upgrading the AUI version used by Confluence Cloud from v6.3.2 to v8.8.4.
The upgrade will be released in the following four phases, at later dates to be determined:
NOTE: For future AUI upgrade release announcements, we’ll be posting new notes for each upgrade as DAC changelog entries, due to Confluence Cloud announcements becoming read-only.
Link to changelog entry for AUI 7.6.2: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/changelog/#CHANGE-983
The changes between versions will all be visual, with updates such as minor CSS revisions and replacing outdated iconography. Furthermore, they will only affect surfaces throughout Confluence that plugins might extend; these changes will not affect the plugins themselves.
What does this mean for me, the developer?
If your Confluence Cloud plugin is using an older AUI version, you will need to evaluate any visual differences in styling or branding as a result of using AUI class names - we are not changing plugin styling, but your plugin’s style might clash with the updated host page style.”
AUI provides detailed upgrade guides for each 7.x and 8.x version:
Notes for Upgrade #1 (Upgrade from v6 to v7.6.2):
- If your plugin is using AUI iconography, it’s possible that your icons are deprecated. This section of the upgrade guide provides a chart with old and new icon names.
- If your plugin is using hardcoded color values, they may be inconsistent with the new color scheme. This section of the upgrade guide provides an overview of the color updates, and the AUI 7.6 documentation provides more details.
