New features:

  • Increased performance and improved cache sizes using zstd for compression for Linux and macOS runners
  • Allowed caching for all events with a ref
  • Created the @actions/cache npm package to allow other actions to utilize caching
  • Added a best-effort step to delete the archive after extraction to reduces storage space
