Jenkins 2.0

We're happy to announce a new version of the Bitnami Jenkins Stack:

Jenkins is an open source continuous integration server built with Java that supports building and testing virtually any project. It supports different SCM tools, can execute Apache Ant and Apache Maven-based projects as well as arbitrary shell scripts and Windows batch commands. Additionally, Jenkins can monitor executions of remote tasks and much more. Hundreds of plugins are also available for configuring your own system based on your specific requirements.

The highlights of Jenkins 2 are:
  • Built-in support for delivery pipelines
  • Improved usability
  • Fully backwards compatible
The new Jenkins pipeline enables the ability to define workflows by describing them in a domain-specific language. The pipelines are durable, versatile and extensible, with all of their functionality designed to meet the needs of a continuous delivery system. To learn more information about this release, visit the Jenkins 2 overview page.

With Bitnami, you can deploy a ready-to-run Jenkins Stack with just one click. To get started, choose from our all-in-one free native installers (for Linux, Windows and OS X), virtual machines and Cloud Images.
