Today, GitLab released the version 13.5 with several new features. Also Salsa got some changes applied to it.
GitLab 13.5 includes several new features. See the upstream release postfix for a full list.
It's been way over two years since we started to use Google Compute Engine (GCE) for Salsa.
Since then, all the jobs running on the shared runners run within a
providing a fresh set of one vCPU and 3.75GB of RAM for each and every build.
GCE supports several new instance types, featuring better and faster CPUs, including current AMD EPICs.
However, as it turns out, GCE does not support any single vCPU instances for any of those types.
So jobs in the future will use
n2d-standard-2 for the time being,
provinding two vCPUs and 8GB of RAM..
All builds run with IPv6 enabled in the Docker environment.
This means the
lo network device got the IPv6 loopback address
So tests that need minimal IPv6 support can succeed.
It however does not include any external IPv6 connectivity.
