 +==== 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 auto-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]].
