The latest release of Hudson, 1.344, was released on February 5th, 2010. The release contains primarily bug-fixes but has a few enhancements baked into it as well. As mentioned in "[Incoming! More Translations", 1.344 incorporates a number of community-driven translations (see the other post for more information). Additionally, 1.344 removes the "easter egg" background image I wrote about in a post to my personal blog: Mourning Sun Enough of the small talk, here's the breakdown.

Bugs fixed

  • Removed the forced upper casing in parameterized builds. (issue 5391)
  • Password parameter on the disk should be encrypted. (issue 5420)
  • Duplicate entries on Upstream/Downstream project with "Build modules in parallel". (issue 5293)
  • "Projects tied on" should be "Projects tied to". (issue 5451)
  • Fixed the bug that prevents update center metadata retrieval in Jetty. (issue 5210)


  • Show which plugins have already been upgraded in Plugin Manager. (issue 2313)
  • Show Hudson upgrade status on manage page instead of offering same upgrade again. (issue 3055)
  • Make badges in build history line up. (report)


This release of Hudson contained 44 commits from 5 different contributors to "core":
  • abayer
  • kohsuke
  • mindless
  • sogabe
  • huybrechts

  • As usual, you can go grab the latest .war file straight from `` or if you're using a native package, use your package manager to upgrade.
    Update: This post was written a day before issue 5536 was discovered. I recommend waiting until 1.345 to update any production Hudson instances.
