Jenkins Maven jobs do not log errors

I recently had a few issues with my Jenkins, Maven, Git environment failing builds without displaying any actual errors. To say the least this was very frustrating especially since the Maven builds ran just fine from the command line in the Jenkins work space.

Issue: Jenkins Maven jobs do not log errors.

Discussion:

 Apparently a bug was introduced in Jenkins with the release of 1.526 which caused Jenkins to not display errors generated by maven, Only displaying the build as a failure. This is discussed in the Jenkins Jira instance here:JENKINS=19352 

Solution: 

Roll back Jenkins to version 1.525
