Today we’re rolling out a new and improved flow for creating repositories on GitHub. To start off, you’ll find a new create repository button in your header.

The new create a repository screen has been redesigned, and organizations are now front and center.

If you need to upgrade your account to add a private repository, you can now do that inside of the new repository screen.

We’ve also added the ability to automatically initialize a repository, along with the ability to choose a .gitignore from one of our templates.

Why don’t you create a new repository and try it out?
