RT 4.4.1rc2 released

RT 4.4.1rc2 – 2016-07-06

We’re pleased to announce the availability of the second release candidate
for RT 4.4.1. This release candidate addresses several bugs in the RT 4.4
series and improves compatibility with extensions.

We would be thrilled to hear your experiences installing or upgrading to
this release; the more feedback we get, the sooner the official release
of RT 4.4.1 can occur. Please be sure to review the upgrading
documentation available in docs/UPGRADING-4.4, as there are a number of
important changes to be aware of. Even if you’re upgrading from RT
4.4.0, you’ll want to look at the bottom of that document for
4.4.1-specific upgrading notes. Upgrading documentation is also
available at https://docs.bestpractical.com/rt/4.4.1/UPGRADING-4.4.html

The list of bug fixes since the first 4.4.1 release candidate is
included below.
