I wish I could test this release as I was really waiting for rules dedicated to test code. Unfortunately your message was sent on Friday evening and I won't be able to test it until Monday evening. I hope you'll get +1's from people having tested the plugin !
One question though : this version requires the new version of Maven plugin, but what about Jenkins plugin, will it select the right Maven plugin version or do we have to do anything special ?

By default the Jenkins plugin runs mvn sonar:sonar so it means latest release available on central. If you want to use the 2.6 mojo version you have to add the staged repository to your Nexus. But that's a bit dangerous in case the release is canceled since cleaning up will be complex. I suggest you do the test locally and use it on Jenkins only when final release is done.
