Jenkins 2.307 released Tuesday, August 17, 2021 with Java 11 in the default Docker images. Jenkins 2.303.1 will release Wednesday August 25, 2021 with Java 11 in the default Docker in the long term support release.
Users that continue to require Java 8 can use the
jdk8 suffix on the Docker image tag. For example, I can run Jenkins 2.307 using Java 11 with the command:
$ docker run --rm -i -t jenkins/jenkins:2.307
I can run Jenkins 2.307 using Java 8 with the command:
$ docker run --rm -i -t jenkins/jenkins:2.307-jdk8
We’ll use this topic for discussions related to the change from Java 8 to Java 11.
