Chris Chant, author of "Aircraft of World War II" states the maiden flight of the first 30 prototypes was december 1944, so i think the massproduction ones were taken into service early 1945.

Specification was issued on 8 September 1944, drawings were finished on 30 October1944, first flight was made on 6 December 1944 & by VE day 300 had been made with 800 on the assembly lines.
A remarkable achivement to design and build a fighter in that short space of time but lack of fuel and poorly trained crew for this tricky plane meant it was a wasted effort.
