After months of warnings, Travis CI GmbH has finally set a date for the shutdown of Travis-CI.org, its free continuous-integration platform. According to the current website banner, the shutdown will happen by the end of this month (May 2021).
My Minie and Libbulletjme projects still rely on Travis-CI.org, so I’ve begun transitioning them to Travis-CI.com, the GmbH’s other platform. Thanks to my open-source efforts, I’ve already been granted a large number of free credits there.
I’m not sure how much the JMonkeyEngine project will be affected by this shutdown. During 2014–2019, the Engine relied on Travis-CI.org for several native builds, but Riccardo switched them all to GitHub Actions. Our SDK repo still has a “.travis.yml” build script, but I don’t know how vital it is, nor whether its function(s) can easily be migrated to other continuous-integration platforms.
