Kohsuke Kawaguchi, senior staff engineer at Sun Microsystems, has revealed that he is leaving the company.

Following his departure, Kawaguchi has written that he plans to start his own company to take Hudson to the “next stage.” Even though Kawaguchi is leaving Sun/Oracle, he will continue to lead the Hudson project and help to transfer the Hudson infrastructure services to their IT operations team. Kawaguchi warns the Hudson community to expect some out-of-schedule releases and service disruptions during this period.

“And finally, big thank you to everyone in the Hudson community, and in a broader community. I wouldn’t be here without you guys, and I feel very proud that I’m a part of it,” he concludes.
