      Description

      As described in JENKINS-9679, merely updating the version of slave.jar served from Jenkins master does not cause JNLP agents to use the new version; they persist in using the JNLP cache. This makes debugging changes difficult, and can result in bug fixes seeming to not take effect in user deployments.

      We do set an immediate Expires header on /jnlpJars/slave.jar but apparently this does not suffice.

            Jorg Heymans, are you using Windows service on Windows? If yes, I'm working on such feature for WinSW

            The feature for Windows service agents has been delivered in Jenkins 2.50.
            Regarding the pure agents, it is still TODO

            WinSW changes are not the LTS candidate. Whatever needs to be done for other agent types, it won't be an LTS candidate as well. And this issue is actually not a bug anyway. It's architecture flaw, but still an improvement/new feature
