  • Maven 3 support: including a command, post-processor and resource discovery.
  • Agents page updates: with graphical status and more convenient navigation.

  • New agent history tab: quickly browse all builds that involved an agent.
  • Reworked server activity tab: showing build stages nested under active builds.
  • Pause server: admins can pause the build queue, so all triggers are ignored.
  • New server history tab: showing build history across all projects.
  • Restyled info and messages tabs: for both the agents and server sections.
  • Improved process termination: to make terminating builds more reliable.
  • Kill build action: for quicker build termination forgoing full clean up.
  • Improved changelist views: these views have been reworked in the new style.
  • Pinned builds: mark builds that should never be deleted or cleaned.
  • Templated field actions: easily find or revert to an inherited value.
  • Introduce parent refactoring: adjust your template hierarchy over time.
  • Pluggable resource discovery: automatically locate build tools and libraries.
