We just posted the updated Long-term Release (LTS) of 1.409.2.
Just as a recap, with LTS releases, we plan on providing a release train that only has backported changes. 1.409.2 contains a handful of important bug fixes since 1.409.1. For more about LTS, see this wiki page.
Thanks to the heroic effort of those who are involved, namely Vojtech Juranek and a bunch of heroes, this release went through a rather rigorous testing, including all the automated tests we have plus a considerable number of manual eye-ball tests.
To download, click the "Long-Term Support Release" tab from the top page. If you've already been using LTS, you should start receiving update notifications soon.
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
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!

We've done meetups, we've done sessions, we've done workshops, now it's about time we went ahead and did user conference don't you think?
Our pals over at CloudBees (Harpeet specifically) have taken the initiative in starting to organize just that: a Jenkins User Conference on October 2nd.
If you have your calendar at the ready, you'll notice that October 2nd is the Sunday before JavaOne kicks off this year in San Francisco.
The details are still coming together, but a proposed agenda has already been posted by Harpeet.
As this is a community event, I'll be sure to keep the updates coming on this site but you may want to add the CloudBees' Blog to your feed reader just in case (or just follow them on Twitter: @CloudBees).
