Dimmed theme beta for

A dimmed theme, with a more subdued UI with a little less contrast than our dark mode theme, is now available to all users as a public beta. This update also includes new appearance settings to give you more control over which theme displays during the day and night. Opt-in to the beta by enabling the theme in your Feature Preview settings, located in the profile menu dropdown. Once the Feature Preview has been enabled, navigate to the "Appearance" tab in your profile settings to choose your preferred theme setting.

Dependabot can now access dependencies from authenticated private registries, such as GitHub Packages, Azure Artifacts, and Artifactory. These private registries are similar to their public equivalents, but they require authentication and are only available to members of your team or company. With this release, Dependabot version updates can help keep inner source as up-to-date as open source.

To enable this feature, add a registries section to your dependabot.yml, reference your new registries in the relevant updates, and add any secrets to Dependabot’s secret store. For example, here’s how to use GitHub Packages with Dependabot:

    type: npm-registry
    token: ${{secrets.GITHUB_PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN}} # make sure to store this in your Dependabot secrets!

    package-ecosystem: npm
    directory: "/"
      - npm-ghp-octocat
      interval: daily

This complements your ability to give Dependabot version updates access to private repositories, which is common for ecosystems like go modules and npm.
