Release notes 5.4

What's new in this release

Take control with new Javascript permissions

Admins can now enable or disable Javascript use within HTML macros globally on the HTML for Confluence Configuration screen.

You can also control Javascript usage on pages that are using the HTML macro by enabling the html.allowJavascript macro in the Macro Security for Confluence Configuration page. To know how to enable this macro, refer to Macro Security Configuration.

Easy navigation for admins

Admins, we've been listening to your feedback and version 5.4 has some exciting additions for you. You no longer need to hunt and peck to find the configuration page. HTML for Confluence is now added as an item within the side navigation (General Configuration > BOB SWIFT CONFIGURATION > HTML).

New parameter in XSLT macro editor

A new parameter xsltVersion is now added to XSLT macro. This lists the XSLT versions the macro is compatible with. Select the version based on your style (XSLT) input document. To learn more, refer to XSLT Macro.
