Gliffy in Confluence 4

By Eric Chiang on Sep 19, 2011 in Latest & Greatest

Drum roll please...

After several months of top secret work, we're proud to announce the launch our new Confluence 4 compatible plugin!

Gliffy is now as easy to use as the new Confluence 4 editor. We've worked hard to make the editing experience as natural and as seamless as possible. No longer will you need to toggle between editing a diagram from the wiki view and updating the diagram layout from the edit view, everything happens in-line with the Confluence 4 editor.

We've also updated how the diagram appears in the wiki view. We've hidden our edit links until you're ready to interact with the diagram. Once you hover over a diagram, you'll now be able to zoom larger or edit straight away.
