Blog from June, 2014

We just got informed by our network provider that maintenance works on our Internet connection are scheduled for Friday, June 27th.

Between 6:45 and 07:30 on Friday morning, Internet access may be impaired for a few minutes.

On Thursday 26 June 2014 between 07:00 and 08:00 local Bremen time servers and network components will be updated.

Server and network operations will be unreliable. Expect unavailable servers and sudden downtimes of services without prior explicit announcement.

If you have to work on files stored on the server during that time, then before the maintenance hour copy the respective files to your local hard disk, work on it locally, and after finishing your work and after the end of the maintenance interval, copy them back onto the server.

For more details on the maintenance hours see the Maintenance Hours page.

The teamwork system needs to be updated to the current software version. Therefore,

teamwork will not be available on Wednesday, June 25, between 6 and 9 am.

The new software version will bring many improvements and new features. A first impression can be found at https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/whats-new

The licensing model of some plugins has changed from free to commercial. As we will not buy these plugins, some functionality will vanish with the update as well.

The full list of changes, including explanations and videos, is available at:
