Version 8


Version 8.0.0 - Major Release

With this major release we merged the Page Tree Creator and Space Tree Creator into one product. The Space Tree Creator is now the Page Tree Creator and the Page Tree Creator becomes the Page Tree Creator Pro.

We also moved the template configuration completely to a Confluence macro based approach.

And last but not least, we overhauled and consolidated big parts of the architecture.

The main benefits are:

  • You only need one app instead of two and create pages and spaces from a single app

  • Consistent functionality across use cases

  • Simplified development, build and release management for shorter release cycles

  • And with a view to the future, this serves as preparation for the migration path to the cloud

Important: Such a major release requires some fundamental changes on the technical side. To prepare your Confluence instance and avoid any trouble, be sure to read and understand the Installation and Migration chapter.
