Advanced(?) JQL Challenge

We are trying to create a filter where we get a collections of items from a project and also get the "Release date" of the associated Version or fixVersion.  It appears that the fixVersion is an available object but not the attribute(s) of the object.

Can you explain a bit more? You can only return issues using JQL but the advanced JQL functions can returns issues or other attributes like projects, fixversions etc using which issues can be searched.

Perhaps an example is the way to describe here.  Let's say you are trying to generate a query to create a periodic report.  You have a project called "XYZ", with and Issue Type "ABC".  Eventually you have a collection of ABC items with assorted "Fix Versions"  associations.  Each "Fix Version" or "Version" has a "Release Date".  

So you need to see a report that shows each ABC item in project XYZ where status is completed/closed/whatever along with the associated "Release Date" of the "Fix Version" for each XYZ item. 

From what I have been able to determine there is no way to accomplish this rather simple task.

You are right. You can find the issues (each ABC item in project XYZ where status is completed/closed/whatever) along with fixVerison but not with the associated "Release Date" of the fixVersion because release date is not an attribute on the issue. You can do this only if you capture the release date on the issue, either manually in to the custom field or programmatically in to a scripted custom field.
