  • Forums and topics
    • “I developed a jenkins dashboard app for desktop”
    • Delaying selection of next LTS baseline 2-4 weeks for stabilization
      • 2.346 released on Tuesday fixes a few more issues
      • Still a few remaining that make 2.347 (next Tuesday)
    • Java 11.0.15, Java 8u332, and Java 17.0.3 in progress

        • Commonly done immediately after the preceding LTS baseline
          • Would be within the next few weeks
        • Plugin won’t require Java 11 until they require a Jenkins version that requires Java 11
          • Most plugin maintainers choose an LTS release
          • Don’t see any requirement yet that forces plugin baseline version to be updated
        • Using Sept instead of June is a “quieter” LTS re: UI changes
          • June UI changes are significant

          • Keep the responses simple and point to deep docs
            • What information do we need for a bug report
            • Include “What do we need in a bug?”
          • Consider a triage bot for a future project
            • You mentioned “bootstrap” and “class loader”, see this for more information
