Finishing off the second week in March, the Hudson team rolled Hudson 1.350 off the assembly line last Friday, bringing a slew of fixes. Of particular interest to users of Hudson's various native packages for Red Hat, openSuSE, Ubuntu/Debian and Solaris, was a change that suppress the "self-upgrade" functionality in the "Manage Hudson" page. On the enhancements side of the fence, the team added authentication support to the Hudson CLI (issue 3796) allowing Hudson users with locked down installations to take advantage of everything the CLI has to offer.
Internal to Hudson, some more changes from Alan Harder (a.k.a mindless, a.k.a The Garbage Man), deprecating or otherwise removing deprecated APIs. Alan's been doing some great work on Hudson's internals, if you're coming out to this weekend's hackathon, but sure to pat him on the back for his tireless efforts.
