Version 4.4.3

Released on 2021-03-23.


If upgrading a cluster, you must be running CrateDB 4.0.2 or higher before you upgrade to 4.4.3.

We recommend that you upgrade to the latest 4.3 release before moving to 4.4.3.

A rolling upgrade from 4.3.0+ to 4.4.3 is supported.

Before upgrading, you should back up your data.
