Jenkins milestone steps do not work yet

Public Service Announcement for anyone relying on Jenkins for continuous deployment - the milestone step plugin as of version 1.3.1 will not function correctly if you could have more than two builds running at once - older builds could get deployed after newer builds.

See JENKINS-46097.

A possible workaround is to add an initial milestone at the start of the pipeline, which will then allow builds to be killed early. (Builds are only killed early once they have passed their first milestone.)

Going by the source history, I reckon this bug has been present since the milestone-step plugin was created.
