(Editor's note:Apologies for the delay in getting this wrap-up out, it's been quite a busy month!)
This year has already been full of milestones, the first of which being our first birthday as an open source project. The second major milestone for the project was that we went to FOSDEM 2012, arguably the largest volunteer-organized and operated open source conference on the planet.
We had a couple of things going on at FOSDEM that merit a mention:
The Jenkins project had a stand in the K building, the same building where the Free Java, Config and Systems Management, and a few other pertinent dev rooms were located
Après le succès de la Jenkins User Conference l’an dernier à San Francisco et à l’intérêt qu’elle a soulevé, nous organisons cette année la JUC dans quatre grande villes à travers le monde. La premiére étape de cette tournée est la JUC 2012 à Paris, le 17 avril. La conférence aura lieu la veille de Devoxx France dans les mêmes locaux. La date a été spécialement choisie pour que vous puissiez faire d’une pierre deux coups, ou plutôt deux confs !
On February 2nd, 2011 the first release of Jenkins, version 1.396, was made available for public consumption. Thus marking a new beginning for many of us who had come to rely on this very versatile piece of software and wanted to see it continue to thrive.
Along with some other bug fixes, the 1.396 release of Jenkins included a very important changelog item:
Fixed a trademark bug that caused a considerable fiasco by renaming to Jenkins
If you can make it to Brussels, you definitely should come to FOSDEM. It's one of the largest meetings of open source developers and users on the planet! It's a tremendous opportunity to meet other people in the open source community but also a great learning experience, with over 25 main tracks and plenty of devrooms each hosting their own talks, demos and hackathons. The event is also free!
