Atlassian Confluence 4.0 is Coming

Atlassian announced some of the upcoming features in the next version of Confluence, its enterprise wiki and collaboration tool. New capabilities include:
– a new and simpler Wiki editor, including better macro capabilities.
– auto-formatting of wiki markup, to speed writing and editing.
– @mentions (like in Twitter and Yammer), for pinging colleagues and inviting them into a conversation.
– better page comparison functionality.

These are good, solid improvements.

Version 4 is in beta. The release date has not been announced.
