Hi all,

Today we deployed replacements to node3, node4 and node5 - which were the
remaining old workers attached to Invent.

This means that all workers have now completed being updated to a more
modern host operating system (Ubuntu 22.04) as well as newer generation
hardware (with the CPU now being a Ryzen 7700 compared to the previous
Ryzen 3700X).

Windows builds have also been moved over, with the only change there being
a reduction from 24GB RAM to 16GB RAM being allocated to Windows on those
three nodes. Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition continues to be used as
the host OS for those builds.

The legacy builders are still currently performing FreeBSD builds, however
I will provision those FreeBSD VMs shortly so they should transition across
soon as well.

Please let us know if there are any issues.
