Cross-Platform GitHub Action 0.3.0
For those not familiar with this project, it provides a GitHub action for running GitHub Action workflows on multiple platforms. This includes platforms that GitHub Actions don't natively support (for more information see the original announcement of the project ).
The major new feature in this release is the support for a new platform: NetBSD. The only supported version so far is 9.2. Other minor features since the last announcement are support for FreeBSD 13 and OpenBSD 6.9.
Under the Hood
For those interested in what's going on under the hood. This release contains some major refactoring to add support for the QEMU hypervisor. Up until now the xhyve hypervisor has been used for the FreeBSD and OpenBSD platforms. Unfortunately NetBSD doesn't run on the xhyve hypervisor, therefore support for QEMU was added. In this release it's only possible to run NetBSD on Linux hosts. The GitHub Linux runners doesn't support hardware accelerated nested virtualization. This unfortunately means that the QEMU hypervisor will be a bit slower than the xhyve hypervisor.
