Geo-replication is now out of early access and available in Enterprise 2.11. Geographically distributed data centers use multiple replicas, so requests are always sent to the closest server and fulfilled faster than ever before.
Hotpatching is also out of early access and available in GitHub Enterprise 2.11. Now, you’ll almost always be able to upgrade to a newer patch release with zero downtime—no need to sweat about last minute security fixes.
Whether you’re working on a project within your team or across departments, nested teams keep information clearly organized. With Enterprise 2.11, you can make sure the right people have access to the right code and reduce noise as contributors grow. Child teams inherit their parent’s access permissions, so repository permissions and mentioning among nested teams work from top to bottom, improving the flow of communication. For example: If your team structure is Employees > Engineering > Application Engineering > Identity, granting Engineering write access to a repository means Application Engineering and Identity also get that access.
Great reviews can take a village. With team reviews, you can ask an entire team to look at your pull request with one mention. Just tag the team in the “Reviewers” section of your pull request for better reviews from more teammates in less time.
You can now define exactly which people and teams always need to review projects with code owners. Select code owners, and they’ll automatically be requested for review when a pull request touches the files they own. There’s also a protected branch option, which requires code owners to leave a review before anyone can merge a pull request to the branch. Never worry about mistaken merges going unnoticed again.
