 Atlassian today announced a new version of Confluence
<https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence>, its collaboration

....To do this, Atlassian also today announced that it has acquired Good
Software <https://www.goodsoftware.co/>, a company that makes analytics
tools for Confluence users and admins.

In total, Atlassian is announcing 15 new features for the product.
Unsurprisingly, given the acquisition of Good Software, one of these new
features is extended analytics. With this, Confluence users will be able to
see how others in their company engage with their content. The idea here,
Atlassian says, is to help everybody write better content and not just see
who writes the most popular copy (though that’s surely how this will also
be used). There are some other uses here, too, though. An HR manager may
notice that a page with outdated information is still getting hits, for

.....Another major new feature is the introduction of an updated editor.
The core features of this new editor are actually shared across most
Atlassian products now, but as Pratima Arora, the company’s head of
Confluence, told me, that editor is then tweaked for the individual
products. For Confluence, this means support for the ever-important feature
of adding emojis to your pages, but at the core of that is the new slash
(/) command that, similar to Slack, lets you add tables, images and macros
to your pages. Other new features include the ability to easily create
better-looking tables of content, action items, roadmaps and due dates, as
well as smartlinks that automatically preview content for services like
Google Drive, Dropbox, Trello, GitHub and others. All of this is meant to
make organizing content just a little bit easier....

...Also new are a set of new templates and a new media experience."
