Pipeline Suite Upgrades in CJP

We are delighted to announce the availability of CloudBees Jenkins Platform which includes significant upgrades to key pipeline plugins, improved functionality for Declarative pipeline and support for Git Large File Storage. As always this release includes the most recent security fix, issued on 20 March.

Release Highlights

Pipeline Suite Upgrades

This update streamlines and improves the integration for the existing integrations with GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, Bitbucket Cloud (Git and Mercurial) and Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash). As a result of this added functionality, the GitHub Organization Folder plugin has been deprecated and its functionality integrated into the GitHub Branch Source plugin.

Declarative Pipeline Upgrades

We added improvements for working with Dockerfiles so that users can specify a directory to build an image using the "dockerfile" option. In addition, Declarative syntax will now automatically checkout source code into the workspace for each stage that requests a new agent in the Pipeline.

Support for Git Large File Support (LFS)

The Git plugin now supports Git Large File Storage (LFS) as an "Additional Behavior", enabling users to work with Git repositories containing large binary files. This functionality makes it easier to create concise checkouts in Jenkinsfiles.
