Branches are an essential part of collaborating using GitHub Flow. They’ve always been cheap and easy to create within a GitHub repository, and today we’re making branch management more straightforward.

At the top of any repository page, click Branches to see an overview of the branches across your project.

Atom’s branches page

You can quickly filter the branches you’ve created, and see which branches are most active. New sections on the page also make it more obvious how you need to take action on the branches in your repository—whether that’s cleaning up stale branches, examining a branch with a failing test, or sending a pull request for the branch you just pushed.
