      Description

      As per JENKINS-27268, all instances of "slave" were renamed to "agent" throughout the Jenkins core UI, and the changes were merged into the Jenkins 2.0 branch.

      To be consistent| with the new naming, and as per the terminology sweep, and the proposed renaming in JENKINS-33007, I believe it would be good if node was renamed to agent in the Pipeline DSL.

      For backwards compatibility, node should most likely still be supported, as an alias for agent.

            AFAIK node is still in use to mean master or agent.
