    • Controller Weekly 2.438 and 2.439
      • Update to Jenkins 2.439
      • Bump Debian Bookworm Linux Version to 20231218
      • The release process is manual, we have to publish manually on the Docker repository
    • Docker-agent: nothing new
    • Inbound-agent: nothing new
    • Ssh-agent: nothing new
  • Work in progress on images:
  • Jenkins Artifactory bandwidth reduction project results
    • Completed, ⅓ savings of bandwidth expected, minimal impact to developers
    • Final measurements needed
    • Still finding some minor issues, resolving them as we find them.
    • The logs files were analyzed, no consumption of sonatype repo
    • A cleanup item was brought by a Jenkins contributor.
      • openBSD bcrypt algorithm (jbcrypt) was used and only available in jcenter cache. Someone took a copy of the source code, and released it to Apache Maven central repository. We can now remove our cached copy, and use the official location. Fortunately, the implementation did not change the code at all. Just a different artifact ID.
  • Docker-based quickstart tutorials
    • We’re almost ready to merge. It is a much better experience for the newcomers.
