The September '23 snapshot of the Windows Server 2022 image has been published to
current. This image is available under the
In CircleCI config, you can specify the image directly:
machine: image: "windows-server-2022-gui:2023.09.1"
or by using the Windows orb:
orbs: win: firstname.lastname@example.org jobs: build: executor: name: win/server-2022 version: "current"
- Jobs using attach workspace were experiencing long attach times around 5x-6x longer than before. This was due to an upstream issue with an updated version of git. The version was thus downgraded from 2.41 → 2.40 and should significantly alleviate the delay
- Some users may have noticed a user other than
circleci, with variable $HOME, $USERPROFILE, $CIRCLE_WORKING_DIRECTORY values along with their %FOO% equivalents. This has been fixed and builds should be noticeably more deterministic as a result when comparing images from previous months
Please comment on this thread if there are any issues.
Additionally, the team respins images (push an update, update software, release a new image) for a specific tag extremely rarely to help drive deterministic builds
