When can we expect the improved search for Confluence Server?

Hello, we are currently planning improvements to a plugin for Confluence Server that we would like to use the new search sidebar for – or at least match the interaction principle. At the moment the search is only available as a dark feature. When can we expect the final implementation?
Depending on this, we would either wait with the adjustment or implement it on the basis of the status quo.


Hi kkutter,

in 6.13 you can enable the new search as a dark feature!
See this development release notes: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/preparing-for-confluence-6-13-958443854.html#PreparingforConfluence6.13-SearchUIimprovementsarecoming

This is how you do it: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/how-to-enable-dark-features-in-confluence/qaq-p/444731



I already know about the dark feature. But when can we expect the new search to be the default?
