A Jenkins plugin to run dynamic slaves in a Kubernetes cluster. It automates the scaling of Jenkins slaves running in Kubernetes.

The plugin creates a Kubernetes Pod for each slave started, defined by the Docker image to run, and stops it after each build.

The Kubernetes Plugin for Jenkins 1.0 includes support to get container logs from the pod, Kubernetes API auto configuration and lots of bug fixes.
