LTTP, but Travis CI is pretty cool. Getting automagic build+test on Windows+Mac+Linux e.g. in my SMOL-V github project was way easier than expected; just by having this file:

@aras Travis is nice, but they are a bit behind on Ubuntu releases!

They've switched to 14.04 (Trusty) after 12.04 (Precise) was already EOL, and after 16.04 (Xenial) was already out.

That hurt us a bit because 12.04 didn't have a compiler that could do C++11 (IIRC).

@hirnbrot I think you can install more modern gcc or clang versions in there, even on older OS. E.g. this seems to use gcc 8:

@aras You can, but as I understand it that goes via a PPA, and is additional work.

It's not quite as plug-and-play as it looks.

Also just... you've got five years to upgrade, the EOL dates are known, if you take longer than that that makes me wary.

@aras But...but that's *easy"! BRB, I have 5-6 projects to copy/paste that script into.
