Hudson's Out, Jenkins Is In

The EDRN Informatics Center previously ran the "Hudson" continuous integration server in order to automatically build and test our software products.

However, since Oracle acquired Sun, the software company has been upset with the way the Hudson open-source project was run, and decided to assert ownership over it. The lead developer of Hudson felt it was better to break up the relationship and leave Oracle with the name "Hudson".

The result: Jenkins.

As members of the Informatics Center are also supporters of open source and meritocracy-based software development, we have decided to upgrade our Hudson installation with Jenkins. We are now running version 1.400 of Jenkins.
