Any word on the Linux server builds?

I’ve got a spare 32GB E3-1290 sitting idle in one of my DDOS-protected racks in NJ. I wanted to spin up some Rust servers, but I see that the Linux versions are no longer being released:

I’ve shelved the idea for now, but I’m curious to see if anyone has any insight on why the Linux side was halted or an ETA on when it might return.
