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.

Sorry for delay. I've disabled Travis-CI in the Attnam/ivan repository on GitHub, since they seem to be out of service. Travis-CI has served us incredibly well, paired together with the mxe (m-cross compiler?) has delivered us many years of ivan.exe

To continue the reign of free software, we will return to gcc for our next build, ironically in the heart of Microsoft's infra.

And there was much cursing and wailing in the streets of Attnam, for it is said in the holy book of Valpurus: "Windows is Evil."

Fear not, IVAN plan to purify Windows from inside Infrastructure of Pure Evil with Holy Banana.

Any time. Christmas is a good natural deadline though.
It's a good thing our INSTALL file is so comprehensive, and props to the guys who set up all those macos build scripts in the ci folder. Those are definitely still actively useful.
I was stuck conceptually the day before trying to build on ubuntu-latest. It later occurred to me that I should simply select macos-latest. Silly really.
In that vein, Microsoft's ci tooling is pretty impressive. I wonder what the catch is though? I know they came out with GitHub Copilot based on everyone's code (we should run some tests with it and see if we can get it to spit out some IVAN source code - we have some notoriously unique class and function names, hehe).

The windows build is the first to be built using proper GNU tooling for a long time. More sensible than that whack-ass MXE compiler, even if it gave a fully static binary exe. I really had no idea where those dependencies came from. At least with msys2 it's easy to trace it back to trusted maintainers.
Also easy now is finding dlls using cmake, definitely solved that headache once and for all.

I wish I could understand any relatively long word in those paragraphs besides Christmas, but since everyone else is cheering, I'm assuming it's good, so thanks Fejoa!

I've made a PR with some minor incidental bug fixes and one big oversight with the archangel of Cruentus. We only have a few changes since v0.59, but should we maybe push a new version, especially as it will properly hide GC again?

I’m amenable to this. It will be IVAN 0.60, not that the release number makes any sense, but be ready with the beer!
