Time For A VM Update

Happy Monday Everyone!

We love starting off the week with great news!

After a bit of a delay, we are happy to let everyone know that our VMs have been updated with a host of fixes, updates, and general polish and shine. From language versions, to services, to system settings.

These VM changes will be live for https://travis-ci.org users tomorrow (Tuesday 18 June, 12pm CEST), and for https://travis-ci.com users on Monday next week (24th June, 12pm CEST).

If you have any issues or requests, please create an issue on our issue tracker.

Below are the full details of the updates included in the VM refresh.

Have a great Monday,
