The most useful information found about Jenkins is on StackOverflow and various strange corners of the internet that careful Googling may sometimes find. The actual documentation for Jenkins is poorly organized and extremely vague and outdated. Documentation for plugins, even the plugins most heavily relied upon, is almost non-existent. See More
This is called the Jenkins Long-Term Support (LTS) version and helps to provide the most stable and the most assuring version of the Jenkins CI possible. About every three months a version which has been deemed the most reliable by the community is chosen. After this, it's branched, well-tested features are added if they are missing, it's then tested with the new features, bug fixes are done if necessary and then it's released as the official Jenkins LTS version.

Starting with Jenkins 2.0, the pipeline capability which has been available as a plugin before this version, has been built-in into Jenkins itself. This allows developers to describe their chain of automation in text form, which can be version controlled and put alongside the source tree. See More
CircleCI has support only for projects hosted on GitHub so teams that use BitBucket or any other alternative to GitHub are forced to rely on another CI tool or use third-party solutions to be able to integrate CircleCI with BitBucket. One of those solutions may be Cloudpipes. See More
Support for Heroku, AWS, Engine Yard, dotCloud, Fabric, Nodejitsu, AppFog, Capistrano, Rockspace, Joynet. Integration with Heroku is solid with the ability to automatically deploy or merge branches. CircleCI is also very flexible with the deployment arrangement allowing SSH key management, deployment freedom including directly to a PaaS, using Capistrano, Fabric, arbitrary bash commands, or by auto-merging to another branch, or packaging code up to S3.

Circle CI's web UI is clean and easy to use. It gives all the information for a single build in a feed and gives the explanation for each step of the build, what it's doing and what the step is related to. On the top it displays author information and the time and date when the build was started and finished. This is all done by giving only the most essential information without clogging the screen. See More
CircleCI can be connected to any project that is hosted on GitHub by logging in using the GitHub OAuth and adding the desired repository. Whenever a new commit is pushed to GitHub, CircleCI runs the tests that have been already defined and if none of them fails, the build is deployed to the runtime environment. See More
Bamboo is made by Atlassian, the company that also made and maintains tools such as JIRA, Stash and BitBucket, so it's a given that they would integrate quite nicely. For example, when connecting Bamboo with Stash and JIRA, details like JIRA issues, commits, reviews and approvals follow each release from development to production. If HipCHat is part of the integration, team members get notified right away in addition to email notifications. See More
Bamboo is the only build server to offer first-class support for the "delivery" aspect of continuous delivery. Deployment projects automate the tedium right out of releasing into each environment, while letting you control the flow with per-environment permissions. See More
Bamboo allows using Docker containers to create build agents. Using Docker agents lets you run multiple remote agents on the same host without conflicting requirements. It makes it easier to duplicate and distribute changes to build agents, and to use scripts for creating and maintaining agents. How can you define and build your own image and push it to a registry to share?This is when Bamboo’s Docker tasks come into play. Docker tasks make it possible to build an image, run a container, and push a Docker image to a registry from within your build or deployment project. See More
Jenkins is a fork from Hudson and as such it inherits most of it's source code. But Jenkins has far more commits and is a lot more active on the development side than Hudson. A lot of plugin developers have also chosen to support Jenkins and develop their product for Jenkins only. See More
