Updates are coming to all our Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 images

On Wednesday, June 21st 2017, we are going to update all our Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 images. We want to make this update as seamless as possible for our customers so here’s what you need to know and what you can do today to be ready for this release.

Sudo-enabled Trusty images

At 14:30 UTC on Wednesday, we will first update our sudo-enabled Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 images. This new generation of Trusty images is already available in production and can be used by adding group: edge in your .travis.yml file:

sudo: required
dist: trusty

group: edge  # Add this

We advise you all to try this out in preparation of the release that will happen on Wednesday and please reach out to support@travis-ci.com for any issues you might encounter with the new Trusty images.

That being said, we will also follow-up on Wednesday with a blog post detailing the changes that went into the images and the YAML key to add in case you still need to use the previous generation of Trusty images (e.g. for a critical deployment).

Container-based Trusty (beta)

Our images used in our container-based Trusty infrastructure (currently in beta) will also be updated later on Wednesday (estimated 19:00 UTC) . Trusty container images configured by setting sudo: false and dist: trusty in your .travis.yml do not have group tags available at this time for testing. In any case, don’t hesitate to reach out to support for any issue you might encounter with your sudo: false dist: trusty builds.
