Jenkins OSS LTS 2.73.1-cb-3

New Features

Major Release Notes

Upgrade Groovy from 2.4.8 to 2.4.11.

Major Release Notes

Integration of Winstone 4.0: Upgrade bundled Jetty from 9.2.15.v20160210 to 9.4.5.v20170502. This removes support for the deprecated SPDY protocol. The --spdy parameter has been removed accordingly and Jenkins may refuse to start if it's set.

Major JENKINS-39370

Update Remoting from 3.7 to 3.10 adding opt-in support for work directories and improving logging in Jenkins agents.

Major JENKINS-43668

SSHD Module 2.0: Update from SSHD Core 0.14.0 to Apache MINA SSHD 1.6.0 in Jenkins core and Jenkins CLI.

Minor Security Advisory

Update the Mailer plugin version installed when updating from very old Jenkins releases to include the fix for SECURITY-372, the SSH Slaves plugin for SECURITY-161, and the Script Security plugin for SECURITY-258.

Minor JENKINS-28113

Freestyle projects may now list Pipeline jobs as downstream and trigger them, without needing to use the Parameterized Trigger plugin or reverse triggers ("Build after other projects are built").

Minor JENKINS-27299

Internal: Define enabling/disabling in ParameterizedJob rather than AbstractProject.

Minor PR-2864

Internal: Offer default methods on ParameterizedJob to have less boilerplate code.

Minor JENKINS-30785

Fixed Pipeline compatibility for a number of CLI commands (delete-builds, list-changes, console, set-build-description, and set-build-display-name), as well as some issues affecting error reporting in other commands when used with Pipeline.

Minor JENKINS-22949

If you have the Authorize Project plugin installed and configured, its configuration will now be treated as final with respect to the behavior of Job/Build checks from Build other projects and Build after other projects are built. Formerly, if a Per-project configurable Build Authorization was enabled globally but some projects did not specify an Authorization, the two aforementioned checks would automatically fall back to checking as anonymous (typically denying build permission). To restore the former behavior, explicitly configure a Project default Build Authorization to be Run as anonymous. Note that this will affect all build-scoped permission checks, including for example Agent/Build.

Minor PR-2880

Internal API: Tasks.getAuthenticationOf now honors authentication contributed by QueueItemAuthenticatorProvider extensions.

Minor Release Notes

Update WinP from 1.24 to 1.25 to improve performance and diagnostics of issues like JENKINS-30782.

Minor JENKINS-4478

Moved agent port and protocol configuration out of "security" (authentication and authorization) block in Configure Global Security.

Minor JENKINS-44563

Use one-column layout for REST API documentation (.../api URLs).

Minor JENKINS-24064

Plugin Development: Jenkins now no longer publishes a war-for-test artifact. Plugins using this or a later version of Jenkins as baseline need to use plugin parent POM 2.30 or later.

Minor JENKINS-45438

Winstone 4.1: Add Jetty HTTP/2 connector and corresponding options for Winstone-Jetty.

Minor JENKINS-45737

Minor JENKINS-44112

Minor JENKINS-45553

Minor optimization to queue maintenance routines and printing of console notes, mainly for the benefit of Pipeline node blocks.
