We are happy to announce the availability of our May rolling releases for all CloudBees Solutions: CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise (CJE), CloudBees Jenkins Platform (CJP), CloudBees DevOptics and Codeship By CloudBees. Notable highlights include the ability to install and manage CJE 2.x on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and the addition of Plugin Catalog, which enables CJE and CJP customers to add plugins easily to their Jenkins instance even when they are not included in the CloudBees Assurance Program (CAP).
CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise 126.96.36.199
Our flagship solution for enterprise-ready CI/CD in the cloud, CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise solves the automation needs of organizations requiring scalability, security, manageability and resiliency capabilities with Jenkins.
Install and manage CJE 2.x on Google Kubernetes Engine
This release features direct integration with GKE and is a continuation of our strategy to offer CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise on all major cloud service providers.
Supports K8s version 1.7 and higher.
CJE runs natively inside a Google-hosted Kubernetes service:
Cross Team Collaboration triggers
This feature simplifies how users connect pipelines and removes the previous complexity when triggering downstream jobs, eliminating the need to identify and maintain the full path for every downstream job.
Increases automation and collaboration, which lowers the need for manual handoffs between teams. This also reduces the overhead for managing dependencies between builds.
CloudBees Jenkins Platform 188.8.131.52
CloudBees Jenkins Platform, our on-premise CI/CD solution, forms the base of CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise with proprietary features and stable monthly updates, along with trusted support. Features highlighted below are also included in CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise.
A plugin catalog, which is a JSON file, containing non-CAP plugin references with specified plugin versions can now be installed on client-masters and non-CAP plugins can be managed using Beekeeper Upgrade Assistant.
CAP has to be enabled with Beekeeper Upgrade Assistant.
Extending Beekeeper Upgrade Assistant improves plugin management and makes our product more lovable for the user with increased control over plugin usage.
Both CJP and CJE will display notifications in the home page's top menu when new security advisories and updates are available.
