Last year, we exposed repository and organization metadata to help you showcase your open source efforts on GitHub Pages. We’re adding releases metadata to that list, allowing you to more easily display information about your project’s latest version (including release notes) and link directly to download the most recent releases.
Releases are exposed in the
site.github.releases namespace within Jekyll, and contain all the information exposed through the releases API. For more information, see the Repository metadata on GitHub Pages help article.
