Kato - a Jenkins build monitor client for Windows!

Kato is a Jenkins build monitor for Windows. It allows you to keep track of the builds you care about.

Kato is elegant and easy to use. Just type in the url to a jenkins server and select the projects that you would like to track.

Note: The new version as of 5/6/2016 has had its code cert removed, so you will need to uninstall the old app and install the new one. Don't worry, your settings will be remembered!
