Sorry for my several months long hiatus folks!
I've been stupidly busy this year at my job. It's turned into a bit of a 1.5x year, I think everyone feels compelled to work harder due to some kind of perceived existential threat to their employment, causing a feedback loop in which everyone works harder and harder and... well, you get the picture.

Travis is sunsetting their continuous integration platform for open source projects, so I've started scripting some new automated build stuff on GitHub Actions. I've got IVAN compiling on Linux so far.
Eventually we can do the whole release shebang on all the platforms, as it was before on Travis. We should also be able to build natively on windows server for windows builds.

That sounds great!

I haven't tried GitHub Actions yet (I'm mostly working with GitLab right now), how is it?

GitHub's actions were surprisingly easy to put together. Probably made easier because of the trail blazed previously on Travis-CI though.
I found the documentation to be quite general, but a quick search will help you find the right action to the specific use case.

They're reasonably snappy. Here's hoping Microsoft doesn't poop on us!

I've used GitLab runners to convert markdown/asciidocs (can't remember which) to MS Word files before. Also very nice platform, and the original one with private runners.
