The WTFilter Confluence plugin has been mostly unchanged since it was initially written in 2010. This weekend saw the first commit that actually introduces new features. Although work is still in progress, the next release of WTFilter is shaping up to be a much better product.

Here are a few of the changes that will be coming in the next release:

  • Display users that have been detected posting unwanted content (admin panel)
  • The option to choose whether unwanted text should be replaced or to simply report the user
  • The option for an email notification to be sent when unwanted content has been detected
  • An overhaul of the Admin screen to make it more user friendly and improve performance

Due to limited time the new version will be targeted for the latest versions of Confluence only, currently v5.5 and above.
