We announced in January
that Jenkins would be upgrading its Java runtime dependency to Java 8 this
year. After a sizable amount of preparation, this week’s release of
Jenkins 2.54 is the first weekly release to require
a Java 8 runtime.
For users of the weekly release, this means that Jenkins 2.54 must have
a Java 8 runtime installed on the system in order to
run. Those using the
Docker container won’t...
In the next few months, Jenkins will require Java 8 as its runtime.
we discussed interesting statistics showing that Jenkins was now running Java 8
on a majority of its running instances.
Here is how we plan to roll that baseline upgrade in the next few months.
Now: Announce the intention publicly.
April, 2017: Drop support for Java 7 in Jenkins weekly.
With the current rhythm, that means...
