All stacks passed our tests and scheduled to be deployed on Saturday.

Happy Building! :rocket:

New stacks deployed and are available in production :tada:

Thanks @viktorbenei for the updates. Any timeframe for Android/Linux stack update with Ubuntu 18.04 ? There’s this small jo package that I can’t wait to use in my bash scripts :grinning:

Hey @raphaelmina, it’s definitely on the roadmap, but there’s no stable Docker release yet for 18.04. As soon as that’s out, we’re going to switch to 18.04.


Hello @ghaabor,

Is there more visibility since may 7th ?


Hey there,

Yes, we’re rolling out the 18.04 containers tomorrow if they pass our tests. The underlying hosts will be on 16.04 for another week because we’ve experienced some issues, but we’re working on fixing those. The difference between the host and the container version should not cause any issues at all.

That’s great to hear, thanks. I will test this starting monday then, if the tests are passed.
