Default visibility for new repositories

When you create a repository, you can choose whether it should be private or public.

Now, when you're signed into GitHub through an organization's single sign on service and create a new repository through the website navigation, the default selection is Private. This helps prevent sensitive company data from unintentionally being pushed to public repositories. See the about repository visibility article for more information about this choice.

We have released the ability to delete completed workflow runs in the Actions tab. If you have write access to the repository, you can now see a new option to delete the workflow run in the dropdown menu.

You'll be advised that deleting a workflow run could prevent existing PRs from being able to be merged. This can happen if you have protected branch rules requiring certain status checks to pass.
