Latest v1.11.44 revision 2

Released 2021-02-24 Security release

v1.11.43

User-created content regressions

Version 1.11.43 fixes some critical regressions found in version 1.11.42.

Potential issues include:

  • If you use external artifact storage, it is not possible to download entire directories of archived artifacts as Zip files.

  • Zip files containing directories of workspaces, archived artifacts, and similar user-created content are missing top-level directories.

  • File handles are not closed directly whenever individual files are downloaded from workspaces, archived artifacts, and other user-created content. This could result in Jenkins running out of file handles.

CloudBees recommends that you upgrade to the version 1.11.43 to prevent potential issues with user-created content.

v1.11.42

Regression in CloudBees Plugin Usage Analyzer plugin 2.0, 2.2

CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise versions 1.11.41 and 1.11.42 have a potential issue involving the CloudBees Plugin Usage Analyzer plugin versions 2.0 and 2.2:

This plugin produces the analysis.json file in $JENKINS/pup. On large instances, for example with many jobs, this file can be quite large. At the next restart of the controller, the plugin usage analyzer tries to parse this file and with large files this could take some time and it may block the start-up process of the controller thereby leading to longer startup time.

CloudBees recommends that you upgrade to CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise version 1.11.44 or later, or upgrade the CloudBees Plugin Usage Analyzer plugin to version 2.6. If you cannot upgrade to 1.11.44, it’s best to disable the CloudBees Plugin Usage Analyzer Plugin (short name cloudbees-plugin-usage) until then. If Jenkins is not accessible, see Disabling a plugin when Jenkins is down

This issue is only a problem on startup. Another workaround is to remove the file $JENKINS/pup/analysis.json before starting or restarting Jenkins.
