Re: Release 2.4.4

Attached is the changed files list that can be used to upgrade FA from FA v2.4.3 to FA 2.4.4.

Take care to compare the config.default.php with your existing config.php file and make changes in the latter as needed for the new VARLOG/VARLIB constants introduced in this version.

Also verify that the data in the sys_prefs table in all your company's databases have the necessary records to match those in the new sql/en_US-new.sql file now. Refer this commit for an example.
