JIRA 4.4.1 Upgrade Notes
Upgrading from JIRA 4.4 to 4.4.1
Please follow the instructions in the general upgrading JIRA documentation.
Changes to the CSV Importer
Customers using the CSV importer feature and JIRA's Jelly Tags should be aware that the
CSVReader class is now based on
au.com.bytecode.opencsv.CSVReader rather than
com.mindprod.csv.CSVReader. As a result of this change, the backslash character ('\') is now handled differently. If the backslash is found inside quoted text it will be ignored (removed) unless it precedes another backslash or a double quote. In case it does the following character will be kept but the first backslash will be omitted. See JRA-25315 and JIM-596 for details.
Fixes to SOAP and XML/RPC compatability
In JIRA 4.4 there was an accidental break compatibility of the SOAP and XML/RPC apis. Basically "Select" and "Multi-Select" custom fields were sending and expecting option ids instead of data values. This has been corrected and the SOAP and XML/APIs should now behave as they did for JIRA 4.3 and earlier. This is fully documented in issue JRA-25374. If you made changes to handle this compatibility breakage, you may need to revert your changes.
Changes to the default value of the
jira.search.views.max.limit property sets a 'hard' limit on the number of issues returned. See Limiting the number of issues returned from a search view such as an RSS feed for details.
In JIRA 4.4.0, this value was disabled by default, by being either absent from the
jira-config.properties file or present in this file but disabled with a preceding '#'. From JIRA 4.4.1, however, this property has a default value of 1000. See JRA-25298 for details about why this changed.
