Installed the new Jenkins 2.0 last week. New improved installer which makes starting Jenkins a breeze. Backwards compatible and now with the option to build individual branches.
According to Jenkins:
“Currently, the pipeline capability can be downloaded as separate plug-ins. “Pipelines are going to be the core concept to Jenkins instead of just jobs.
So it’s really sending signal to the market that it’s a new life of Jenkins for the next few years,” CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey.
The plug-ins in Jenkins 1.x will be compatible with Jenkins 2.0 upgrade. Also, the upgrade will enable users to cope up with the problem of highly complex Jenkins configurations. ”
