LinkedIn post draft, referencing the CDF blogpost. CC @tracymiranda @MarkEWaite . I can also fit in one of the quotes into the text. Maybe the KK's quote or one from users?
_We are happy to announce that the Jenkins project has achieved the graduated status in the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF). Jenkins is the first project to graduate in the foundation.
To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation, a project needs to demonstrate growing adoption, an open governance process, feature maturity, and a strong commitment to community, sustainability, and inclusivity. Jenkins has met all of these criteria. Thanks to all contributors who made our graduation possible!_

And the LinkedIn one:
An new Dark Theme is now available for Jenkins 2.239 and above! Also, we are happy to introduce a new Theme Manager Plugin. Check out the announcement by Tim Jacomb: https://cd.foundation/blog/2020/08/04/introducing-the-jenkins-dark-theme/
Recently the Jenkins project ran the Jenkins UX Hackfest, and one of the registration questions was “What are the top 3 UX improvements for Jenkins?” The highest actionable request was a “Dark mode/theme”. By the end of the hackfest, we had a working alpha version which required a pre-release version of Jenkins. Soon after the hackfest the Jenkins patches were merged and released in v2.239.
There was still a critical issue with it though: if an admin installed the theme it was forced on all users. We didn’t want that since the dark theme is a personal preference and the quality still needed improvement. We need a way to encourage early adopters to use it without affecting everyone using their Jenkins server. And that’s how the “Theme Manager” plugin was born.

A long time ago, on a computer not so far, war away, a single entity arose to serve the software builds. We asked our user community to say why #JenkinsIsTheWay. "Inspiring, their answers were" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgd1bBlQXBE
