Breaking changes in order to make Plugin POM simpler to use and maintain. See this discussion in the developer mailing list for more info. All changes target JENKINS-60474 from #269 by @jtnord

Note: Jenkins 2.164.x is the minimum supported version as it's the first version that includes the Jenkins bom

💥 Breaking changes

  • Update HtmlUnit to 2.36.0 in Jenkins Test Harness (#271) @dependabot
    • API has some binary compatibility breaking changes, plugin maintainers may need to update the test codebase if they use WebClient-based tests
  • JENKINS-58028 - Remove GMaven from dependencyManagement (#209, #277) @bitwiseman @oleg-nenashev
    • GMavenPlus should be used instead

🚀 New features and improvements

  • JENKINS-58028 - Switch from GMaven to GMavenPlus (#209) @bitwiseman
  • JENKINS-60474 - Libraries that are shipped with jenkins-core now have their dependency versions unconditionally managed by the Jenkins Core Bill of Materials
    • The jenkins-bom and no-jenkins-bom profiles have been removed
    • With this change the libaries used will be correct for a given jenkins.version however this requires a version of Jenkins that was published with the bom (2.195 or higher), or has been explicitly published
    • See here for a list of supported versions
  • A quick-build profile has been introduced that disabled things not related to just producing the desired artifacts. This is activated on the command line in the standard maven way (e.g. mvn -P quick-build package)
  • Add an extra enforcer rule prevent releases from containing SNAPSHOT versions
  • JMH benchmarks are now run by activating the jmh-benchmark directly rather than via a property. (mvn -P jmh-benchmark test)
  • Skipping tests using surefire's skipTest property no longer skips other mojos execution.

🚨 Removed

  • Removed Deprecated findbugs properties, use the equivalent spotbugs property (#269) @jtnord
  • Removed support for compiling plugins with java.level < 8. The only supported java.level is 8
  • Deprecated concurrency property has been removed. use the forkCount surefire option directly from the command line (or pom) (e.g. mvn -DforkCount=4 verify)
  • Support for the jgit provider of the release plugin has been removed. Git executable is now required to be installed and available in the PATH
  • Automatic re-running of failing tests has been removed.
