Pages Legacy Worker Sunset

GitHub Pages’ legacy pagesworker architecture has been shut down on June 30th, 2024.

In August 2022, GitHub Actions became the default method to build and deploy Pages sites. Starting today, the fallback pagesworker architecture is no longer available.

To build a Pages site from a branch with Jekyll, you must enable GitHub Actions in the repository settings. Alternatively, if GitHub Actions is unavailable or disabled, adding a .nojekyll file to the root of your source branch will bypass the Jekyll build process and deploy the content directly. In this case, you would need to build the site yourself and push the static assets to your source branch.

Branch deployment remains available but now requires GitHub Actions unless a .nojekyll file is used.

Delegated bypass for push protection has expanded support to cover pushes from the web file editor. When your organization or repository configures a delegated bypass list for push protection, any commits from the file editor that include secrets will be blocked, and the committer will need to submit a bypass request for review.

GitHub Actions GPU hosted runners are now generally available for Windows and Linux, providing T4 GPU access to Actions customers. These GPU hosted runners empower developers working on machine learning, game development, or with GPU-accelerated code to complete all their CI building and testing on GitHub-hosted runners.

The GPU hosted runners are fully managed by GitHub, with images managed by trusted partners on the Azure marketplace. They are also compatible with GitHub Hosted runners’ static IPs and private networking capabilities.

Get Started

Customers can begin using GPU hosted runners in their organization or enterprise by:
1. Setting up new larger runner GPUs through their runner groups
2. Updating the ‘runs-on’ syntax in their Actions workflow file to call that runner name

More information about setting up, using, and pricing for GPU runners can be found in our documentation on hosted runners.

We’re eager to hear your feedback on these runners, share your thoughts in our community discussions using this template.
