With the release, our Github master branch now reflects a future potential release version of Openfire 4.5.0 and we have also created a 4.4 branch signifying our intention to produce a 4.4.x series of bug fixes. We presently do not have plans of making a 4.3.3 release from the 4.3 branch.

Massive thanks for this release go to @gdt and @guus. They both did lots of great work knocking out some nagging issues and improving the already great administration console. It was also encouraging to see a number of first time contributors submitting pull requests with fixes and new features.

We certainly would encourage folks to test out the new release and report issues in the community forums. Please also free free to stop by our group chat and tell us now the new release is going. We are always looking for people interested in helping out with development, documentation, and testing.

Thank you for your support and usage of Openfire!
