Keep in mind that Jenkins is just continuing what they did when they where called Hudson. Lots and lots of releases with many minor updates. The Hudson, who has Oracle and Eclipse behind, is continue to focus on getting the Maven build story improved. Over time the changes may become so compelling that a switch to that could be relevant.
