The Atlassian JIRA team announces the release of JIRA 4.4.4. This point release contains several updates and fixes, plus an important bug fix (JRA-26172). This bug lead to a database lock, which typically occurred when custom plugins create issues in a high-load environment (specifically inside the same thread where another issue is being updated).
JIRA 4.4.4 is of course free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.
