A couple of months ago Jenkins embarked on an new project, the Jenkins "LTS" (Long Term Support) release line. A LTS branch of development is common in most major open source projects, especially those with substantial corporate adoption, so this was a great step for the project as a whole.
We're now coming up on the second LTS release, which will be an incremental update to the previous one (1.409.1) with only the most important fixes back-ported to the branch.
Now is when we need your help.
We need testers and interested parties from the community to help verify the stability of the planned LTS update, 1.409.2, which is now in the release candidate stages.
The testing of 1.409.2 has been spearheaded by community member
has created this fantastic test
help coordinate testing of release candidates.
The LTS project is entirely community driven, so your input is invaluable in making these releases successful.
If you're interested in helping, speak up on the -dev mailing list and start pitching in on the test matrix!
