GitHub Actions: The Runner is now open sourced

The GitHub Actions Runner is now open sourced. File issues and contribute to one of the most important components of GitHub Actions directly at:

The Runner is the application that runs a job from a GitHub Actions workflow. Jobs can be run in GitHub’s hosted virtual environments, or in your own self-hosted environment.  Learn more about using self-hosted runners with your workflows here.

We’ve fully deployed several updates to the GitHub Actions virtual environments. Highlights include:

    • Upgraded to Visual Studio 16.4.0 (Windows Server 2019)
    • Upgraded to Firefox 71.0 (Ubuntu 18.04, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2019)

You can find more information in the docs. Please note that we plan to pause updates until January 2020.
