Sometimes, you just want to grab someone’s attention when you’re finished with some cool code. That’s why we’ve added support for GitHub’s @mention feature inside GitHub for Windows. You can now @mention repository collaborators, and when you publish your changes they’ll be notified that you’d like them to have a look.


If you already have GitHub for Windows installed, you can update by selecting ‘About GitHub for Windows’ in the gear menu on the top right. Otherwise, download the latest version from the GitHub for Windows website.
