API v3: 190 methods to build on

The entire v3 API is finally here! From commit comments to raw Git access and everything in between, this release wraps up the major development effort around the API. We will still spend a period of time in beta, addressing issues and taking feedback, so if there is something missing or broken please let us know!


Some highlights of this release include:

Some of this functionality doesn’t even exist in v2 and some things (like turning an issue into a Pull Request) can only be done via the API. Along with all these updates, we have continued to improve our developer documentation. The goal is to let you access just about anything on GitHub via the API.
