Hudson 3.3.0 is now available from the Hudson downloads page.
Note that this release mandates the use of Java 7 or above to run Hudson.
Electronic posting will only be satisfactory if the contractor provides computers to employees or has “actual knowledge” that an employee can access the poster electronically.
Under the new regulations, companies are required to ensure that the poster is made available in a form that is “accessible and understandable” to individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans.
This could include providing the poster in Braille or large print formats.
Both of those formats can be requested from the EEOC.
This kind of reasonable accommodation only needs to be made when requested by an employee or applicant, or when the contractor knows that an applicant or employee cannot read the poster due to a disability. Contractors will need to “conspicuously store” the EEO is the Law poster with, or as part of, an electronic application.
The intent of this new requirement is to ensure that job seekers applying through electronic means are informed of their rights.
This could include bulletin boards, intranets, and policy manuals. Federal contractors covered by Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act are also required to post the EEOC’s “EEO is the Law” poster.
Currently, this should at least be posted in places where employees or applicants would congregate.
This is a patch set improves the default security of Hudson by locking down the Hudson Command Line Interface (CLI) by default.
