Travis CI with 14.04/Indigo and/or alternatives

Looking into continuous integration options, the obvious one is Travis CI. To my dismay I quickly discovered that it is really easy to use, but unfortunately the offered servery only run Ubuntu 12.04, so builds requiring Indigo/14.04 are not easily possible. There is a new Docker-based build environment in place (description here), but the limitation of not allowing running sudo makes things very complicated.

My questions thus are: Are there any solutions out there that make it possible to run 14.04/Indigo with Travis? How do other current options for CI compare to Travis? What I especially like about Travis is the fact that no (server) infrastructure has to be maintained by the user.

/edit: Just came across this question: drone.io instead of travis. Certainly sounds like an alternative, but no instructions for use with 14.04 so far.
