You can specify a Confluence page or blog post to be shown in the gadget, which you can then add to your JIRA dashboard or even another Confluence site. The gadget also renders macros from your Confluence page or blog post, allowing you to embed rich content like tasklists, spreadsheets, videos and more, in your applications via the gadget.




Autocomplete for Inserting Macros


Confluence 3.3 builds on the autocomplete for links and autocomplete for attachments features introduced in Confluence 3.2. You can now take advantage of the speed and convenience of autocomplete to insert macros via the rich text editor. Just enter ‘{' and start typing to see the suggested macros that match your text.




Blog Improvements


A number of improvements have been made to Confluence blogs in this release.

  • Blog Navigation Improvements ? The blog view has also been redesigned to present more information with less clutter. The old calendar has been replaced with a new sidebar listing blog posts for the month and you can now see the profile pictures of the bloggers in posts.
