ConfiForms compatibility with Confluence 8
Jan 24, 2023
Yes, we are finally ready with publishing of the ConfiForms app version that is compatible with Confluence 8.0.2 (why not any earlier 8.x version? See this https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-81454)
Oh, how a tough ride it was with so many unknowns and tribal knowledge to figure out and use.
Internally Confluence have switched between frameworks that apps are build upon and that has caused minor effects on simple apps, but on large and highly capable apps, such as ConfiForms, it was a challenge even to think about it.
But we have made it and very happy with the result so far.
New Data Center approval for ConfiForms app
Nov 01, 2022
As you may know, each Data Center app on Atlassian marketplace needs to pass the data center approval process. More on this https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/marketplace/dc-apps-submitting-your-app/
And we have done this for past 3 years and just did it again for year 2023!
Feels good and you can be sure that the app is enterprise ready, well tested and used in very large organisations around the world
ConfiDoc app is now FREE
Jul 08, 2022
We have some news to share. We have decided to make ConfiDoc app free for all. We will try to support new Confluence versions as much as we can, but the app itself will be unsupported and we pan no new features to be added. What about the bug fixes - let me be clear on this. It depends. We hope we will have or find time for this as well.
ConfiDoc app will be retired and archived this summer
Jun 06, 2022
We have made the decision to retire our ConfiDoc app this summer and focus on our "forms" apps - ConfiForms and AssetForms. We will still provide support for all paying customers until the end of their maintenance period. There will be no new features developed, but we will attempt to verify the app's behaviour and compatibility with each new Confluence version as long as possible without a need for big development resources and efforts

Regarding recent vulnerability found in the libraries that Atlassian Connect Spring Boot (https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/atlassian-connect-spring-boot/src/master/) which Vertuna's cloud apps are built on.
All our apps were patched immediately after the patch in the library we depend on has been published. In any case the preconditions set for this vulnerability were never satisfied by our environments and the risk was low (unaffected), we have still updated our apps to patched version
More on the vulnerability https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2022-22965
Barcodes and QR codes are coming to ConfiForms

Yes, Barcodes and QR codes are coming to ConfiForms!
On cloud and on server/data center.
You can render now you form's data as QR codes (urls, SMS, MMS, email) or as barcodes!
We support Interleaved2of5, Codabar, ITF-14, Code39, Code128, EAN-128, GS1-128, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, POSTNET, RoyalMail, USPS and PDF417
Yet another area and business need is covered and supported by ConfiForms!
Gold level partner by heart, silver level by numbers
Feb 02, 2022
With recent Atlassian update we are still on a silver level...
No growth? Stagnation? Not at all - we are doing great and growing fast. But our awesome sales on server and data center prevent us from reaching the minimum share of cloud sales needed to level up.
It's changing, and cloud is growing fast, but we are still couple of percent below the threshold.
Let's see what the next partners program update will bring us :)
Future of "ConfiDoc. Viewer for SQL, XML, JSON, CSV" app
Jan 19, 2022
Our current plans are to retire ConfiDoc app somewhere in the end of 2022/early 2023.
This is a very early warning... and plans might change, but...
There will be no cloud version of this app, but we have plans to create something similar for the Atlassian cloud platform. No ETA at this point.
AssetForms support user timezones!
Jan 14, 2022
Yes, we have finally made it - our AssetForms for Jira app now also supports user's timezones.
6000 and counting support requests have been served
Dec 31, 2021
Some milestone to share... Since we have started to provide the support in an organized way :-) And a lot more then it was just email based.
Couple of years back we have moved to Atlassian JSD and have processed and handled more than 3000 tickets using this software! And before that (little bit less than 3000) - using own home grown simple ticketing system
Thank you for sharing your feedback, your fascinating solutions and complex requirements, and relying on us and our apps.
New prices starting from February 2022
Dec 18, 2021
It has been more than 2 years ago when we last touched our prices.
Our plugins are always evolving and constantly and fanatically improved and enhanced. Added so many features and improvements over last years without asking anything back.
Our support has been working tirelessly and helped thousands of customers. We will no increase our prices much, but expect them to be slightly higher (15-20% at most).
Hope you understand.
As always, feel free to reach out
Dec 11, 2021
As you might have heard, there has been one very bad vulnerability found in one of the libraries widely used in Java world - The vulnerability is called Log4Shell and has an identifier CVE-2021-44228.
At Vertuna LLC we have patched all the cloud systems that were affected by this on Friday 11th, at around 8PM Estonian time.
Server/Data center versions of the plugins are not affected by this vulnerability, as we dont have a direct or indirect dependency on the affected library.
ConfiForms edit view is much faster now
Dec 08, 2021
Yes, another performance improvement. As everybody likes things that work faster and there is always a room for improvement. Form configurations become more and more complex. Our customers want (and could) to implement more sophisticated requirements and expect the forms to be responsive and fast. We do want that as well - challenge accepted! And here it is, new and improved edit view (especially on forms having hundreds of rules and formulas)
Data center approval refresh for ConfiForms and ConfiDoc plugins
Nov 19, 2021
Another year and another round of getting approved for Atlassian Data Center program. And we just made it again.
Tested and verified.

This is available for server/data center and cloud. Looking for your feedback (the field is still in BETA version, but please do have a try and tell us what you think)
Improved rendering performance in ConfiForms
Oct 01, 2021
We have implemented new way of rendering contents in ConfiForms. We call it - parallel mode. It is a multi-threaded way of rendering the contents and we see amazing results. On some configurations the rendering speed improvement is up to 50%. You can switch between rendering modes in your ConfiForms "views" macros at any time.
