With the introduction of reusable workflows, users can use the entire workflow as if it were a GitHub Action, so they can build even faster. Instead of copying and pasting workflow definitions across repositories, users can reference an existing workflow with a single line of configuration. Reusable workflows also help your organization achieve standardization and compliance benefits across the enterprise.

The @mention suggester now makes smarter recommendations. Users who have participated will be listed ahead of other suggestions making it faster for you to find the right people.
Organizations can now publish a README.md to talk about the work they are doing, invite contributions, or guide readers to specific repositories.
