Lockpoint Server 1.6 Release Notes



If you are using a vendor-issued Lockpoint license and considering updating to Lockpoint v1.6.9 or a later version, be sure to first read through Legacy Lockpoint Licenses for important tips.


Confluence 6.2 support and minor fixes for Confluence 6.1

May 23, 2017

New Features

  • added support for Confluence 6.2


  • corrected a problem (for Confluence 6.1+ only) where the Edit in Office option in the file viewer's "More" dropdown was not visible.


Confluence 6.1 support and minor fixes

May 3, 2017

New Features

  • added support for Confluence 6.1


  • corrects a problem where an invalid setting in a user's language profile would yield an exception of the format "Invalid locale format: none" when viewing an attachments page or automatically unlocking files.


Confluence 6 support and a Confluence Data Center fix

December 9, 2016

New Features

  • support for Confluence 6+


  • improvements to a Confluence Data Center fix (which was not completely remedied in 1.6.9) that could cause attachment macro buttons to become duplicated on certain nodes.


Support for Gliffy 6.9.1+ and Atlassian-issued Lockpoint licenses

November 22, 2016

New Features


  • corrected issue where attachment links and buttons were sometimes duplicated


Confluence 5.10 support, plus fixes for Data Center and Office Connector functionality

June 9, 2016

New Features

  • This release introduces support for Confluence 5.10.


  • The inline lock status was not being displayed for files locked by other users when using the inline Office Connector macros for Word, Excel and Powerpoint files. This issue also caused spurious warnings containing "$editUrlHtml" to appear in the log.
  • Fixed an issue impacting Data Center installations (impacting Lockpoint 1.5.5 - 1.6.7 inclusive). This issue prevented node failover from working as intended. If a cluster node is shut down and then the state of the Lockpoint plugin is manipulated (enable/disable/uninstall/upgrade) on a different node while the other node remains down, this problem could prevent Lockpoint from being cleanly removed or upgraded.


German translation updates and Confluence Data Center fix

February 19, 2016

New Features

  • Improved German translations. The user-level language has been refined, and in addition, the entire Lockpoint administrator and space administrator pages are now available in German as well.


  • Fixes a startup problem introduced in Lockpoint 1.6.6 for Confluence Data Center instances.


Japanese translation, multilingual enhancements, and Attachments macro performance improvement

February 9, 2016

New Features

  • Lockpoint is now available in Japanese, with special thanks to the Atlassian Experts at Ricksoft.
  • For systems with multilingual users and users spread across time zones, email notifications are now localized to the recipient user's language instead of the system default language. Dates are also properly rendered using the user's local date format.
  • When configuring space-level unlock timeouts, the default timeouts can now be overridden independently of the default email template content, so it is now possible to override one but not the other.
  • Improved performance for the Attachments macro. Earlier versions of Lockpoint could queue up a number of Lucene search requests when viewing a page containing an Attachments macro with many attachments, which could cause performance issues on systems with large Lucene indexes.
