Linux builds run on VMs by default

We are excited to announce that we've changed the default infrastructure for builds which do not specify a value for sudo: in their build config.

Going forward, all builds which do not explicitly define sudo: false will be routed to our virtual machine-based infrastructure.

We've seen great stability with this change, as well as speed improvements across the platform. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with us through the community forum.

Beginning November 12th, we will start the process of fully deprecating the container-based infrastructure. Please update your build configurations to remove the sudo: configuration option as soon as is convenient.

You can read more on this change on our announcement blog post.
