See info below.
It looks as we're on the Maven project build type for some builds so that
this will affect us wrt JDK7 deprecation.

A few things are going to happen in just over 2 weeks.
1. Migration of Jenkins to a new host. A Jenkins Master module and yaml
have been puppetized and ready to go.
What we need to do to migrate the Master away from its current host is
turn off the old service. Perform a final
rsync of data and perform the migration tasks.
As we intend to preserve history for jobs this will take some time.
At the same time as doing this migration to a new host, all slave
connections will be updated (see below.)
I have no current estimate of downtime, but it will run into several
hours. We do plan to run this migration on a
Sunday at the lowest part of Jenkins usual usage.
2. Upgrade of Jenkins - Jenkins project released a new LTS release, version
2.60.1. This is a major release and breaks
Jenkins in terms of Maven jobs for JDK 7 in the same way that it
happened for Maven and JDK 6 a few months back.
The infra team (mainly myself) got quite some feedback on not supplying
advance notice of this breakage. That upgrade
however was necessary due to security fixes that required our upgrade.
This email serves as advance warning of the
upcoming upgrade of Jenkins, the downtime due to the migration of the
service to a new host; and notice of the breakage
to JDK 7 that the upgrade brings.
Please familiarise yourself with the Jenkins LTS upgrade notes at .
In particular please note:-
