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.
