-==== 9 Upgrade notes for 4.4.0 ==== 
  
-These notes are for upgrading from Zabbix 4.2.x to Zabbix 4.4.0. All notes are grouped into: 
- 
-  * ''​Critical''​ - the most critical information related to the upgrade process and the changes in Zabbix functionality 
-  * ''​Informational''​ - all remaining information describing the changes in Zabbix functionality 
- 
-It is possible to upgrade to Zabbix 4.4.0 from versions before Zabbix 4.2.0. See the [[:​manual/​installation/​upgrade|upgrade procedure]] section for all relevant information about upgrading from previous Zabbix versions. 
- 
-==== Critical ==== 
- 
-=== Jabber, Ez Texting media types removed === 
- 
-Jabber and Ez Texting [[:​manual/​config/​notifications/​media|media types]] for delivering notifications have been removed. ​ 
- 
-During the upgrade these media types, if present in your installation,​ will be transformed to a script media type with all relevant parameters preserved. However, notifications via Jabber and Ez Texting will not work any more. 
- 
-=== Real-time export protocol changed === 
- 
-[[:​manual/​appendix/​install/​real_time_export|Real-time export]] now also includes host names, not only the visible host names. Note that the real-time [[:​manual/​appendix/​protocols/​real_time_export|export protocol]] has been changed with host name information now an object, rather than a string/​array. 
- 
-==== Informational ==== 
- 
-=== Screen element removed from screens === 
- 
-Zabbix screens no longer support the possibility to display another screen as a screen element. After the upgrade, all screen cells containing another screen will be empty. 
- 
-=== Linked template selection === 
- 
-The multi-select field for selecting linked templates has been removed from host/​template configuration forms. To link templates, click on //Add// and then select templates in the popup window. 
- 
-=== Changed host export format === 
- 
-The format of host/​template export in XML/JSON has been changed. For more details, see [[:​manual/​introduction/​whatsnew440#​changed_host_export_format|What'​s new in 4.4.0]]. 
- 
-=== Items table split === 
- 
-Realtime fields have been split from the ''​items''​ table into a new table called ''​item_rtdata''​. See also [[:​manual/​introduction/​whatsnew440#​items_table_split|What'​s new in 4.4.0]].
