Every month, we’re excited to share with you what’s in our CloudBees Jenkins X Distribution release. This month, we’re especially excited.

In addition to 44 issues fixed, we’re announcing the general availability of Lighthouse, our replacement for Prow inside of Jenkins X.

As always, if you have any questions just get in touch or download the distribution to try it out.
