Since I couldn't find a forum, I'll leave this here and hope that it's the right place.
Here's a small problem solution that might be interesting for people who can't release project versions in a fresh installation of Jira 4.4.4.
Problem: After installing a fresh Jira 4.4.4 32-bit I can create a new project versions without any troubles. Changing the project description afterwards or releasing the version is not possible, though. Once you commit your changes, the indicator circles forever and there is no feedback on your action. Everything else but managing versions seemed to work fine.
edit: removed the solution to add it as an answer, so this Question can be marked as solved.
Solution: Managing versions in Jira seems to be the only place which uses a html put-request. In our case the Tivoli Access Manager wasn't configured for that request. Other tools that need a special configuration for put-requests might run into the same problem, though.
I have been encountering the same issue. I have no problems creating versions but having them as released even though you emphatically state it in your request doesn't seem to be happening for me. I will go back and tinker with a PUT.
I was thinking of doing that after looking at the new REST API for Jira5 but you've crystallized it.
