Plugin update for 4.4 version?

I am upgrading Email this issue and jira suite utilites plugin for JIRA 4.4 version. I used them with 4.1.2 version before and they used to be just JAR files. with latest version they come with more details in a Zip file. Any idea on how to use these zip files, do we just need to place the zip files or extracted files in a folder into jira-home/plugins/installed-plugins ?

Have you looked at the install instructions? JIRA Email This Issue Plugin

I did ..It says Download and copy the JAR file to <tt>$JIRA_HOME/plugins/installed_plugins. But when downlaoded the plugin its a zip file and unzipping shows some more folders and file but no jar file. Any idea? </tt>

The link from the page is a jar file for me - https://plugins.atlassian.com/server/1.0/download/pluginVersion/324116

really bizare when I used the link you sent , I got a zip file and unzipping shows com , Meta-inf, Resousces, templates folder and some xml and proprties file. What is wrong?

What you are describing is the contents of a jar file. Use firefox or chrome to download, see if that makes a difference.

Firefox worked ..Thanks Bob

There's a bug that Microsoft insist on leaving in all versions of IE - it silently renames .jar files as .zip. Idiotic thing to do, but easy to fix - you can just change the .zip to .jar (as .jar files are almost always a portable .zip file anyway)

Idiotic indeed. I never understood the reason behind it!
