OAuth Improvements

We have a couple of great new features and improvements to the OAuth
flow
to announce! First off, application developers can now add full
text descriptions and custom images to their applications to help
communicate to potential users.

Next, we have entirely new views for allowing/denying access to your
GitHub account. These views better communicate the identity of the 3rd
party application and what kind of access they are requesting.

Want to develop an application that uses OAuth and leverages the GitHub
API? We have a great set of documentation to help get you started.

OAuth away!
