BuildMaster 4.4.5 Has Been Released

We just shipped BuildMaster 4.4.5. It's a maintenance release of BuildMaster 4.4 which means that there is minimal risk to upgrading from an earlier 4.4. However, if you're planning to upgrade from a version prior to 4.4, make sure to read the appropriate upgrade notes.

To install or upgrade, simply download BuildMaster and run the installer.
