Below are some important notes on upgrading to Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0. For details of the new features and improvements in this release, please read the Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 release notes.
Confluence versions 5.9.0-5.9.3 are not supported
Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 does not support Confluence versions 5.9.0-5.9.3.
Your old templates from PDF Exporter 3.x are still supported – but not for ever
Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 introduced a new way of designing templates with the visual WYSIWYG editor.
You can still edit and export with your existing templates and export schemes in the current version – but support will be removed in a future version.
We recommend re-creating your old templates in the new template editor as soon as possible. If there are any features missing from Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 that are blocking you from re-creating your old template, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
It is possible to roll back Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 to an earlier version
If you are using Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0, you can roll back to earlier versions of the add-on.
Support for Comala Workflows is not yet included (but we're working on it)
Scroll PDF Exporter 3.5 featured Comala Workflow integration – this has been removed for new templates created in version 4.0 (but still works for your old templates created in Scroll PDF Exporter 3.x and earlier, though).
But it's not gone forever – we're working on building an improved, more stable integration in a future version.
After installing Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0, you need to upgrade most of your other Scroll Add-ons
When you upgrade to Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0, you need to update most of your other Scroll Add-ons
Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0 runs on the new Scroll Runtime 2.0 platform – when you upgrade to Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0, Scroll Runtime 2.0 is automatically installed.
The following Scroll Add-ons are incompatible with Scroll Runtime 2.0, and need to be updated after installing Scroll PDF Exporter 4.0:

End of life policy
With this release, we are also introducing our new end of life policy.
We're following the same end of life policy as Atlassian. Our add-ons will support all versions of Confluence that have been released within the last two years of the release of a new add-on version.
You can find further details until when specific versions are supported in the Atlassian End of Life policy.
