Customize JIRA Release Versions Edited

I have a request from my users to customize the 'fields' for the Release Versions in JIRA.  As far as I can tell is this is not possible.  The current options when you create a Version are:  Project, Name, Description, Start and Release Date.  They want to add a couple more options to that.  Is that possible?  If so, how would I go about it?

See the screen shot of what's available now.  Below is what where they'd like to customize.

That requires coding, and I suspect it's coding in the system add-ons that make up the off-the-shelf JIRA, not something you can do with a simple add-on.

Thanks, Nic!  :)

Hi Mary,

if you want to have more control and options over your releases you need to use a full Release Management solution like Cycle Control. It can be used for single project + version releases as well as multiple team/versions/projects releases.
You can define your own custom fields, lifecycle and metrics.

Let me know if you need more information.
