- Over 170 GitHub pull requests in the past four months, with more being sent every day.
- Formalization of a "Jenkins Stable" branch of development with longer release cycles and back-ported bugfixes.
- Over 280 tickets in JIRA have been resolved.
- After posting a "special" release of Hudson which presents users with a choice, 87.25% are choosing to upgrade to Jenkins.
- Over 500 tickets have been created
- Roughly 13,000 downloads of
jenkins.warand native packages a week
