Better deep linking experiences on GitHub Mobile

If you use notifications on GitHub Mobile, you've probably had the frustrating experience of tapping on a notification only to end up in the wrong place on the timeline, unsure of exactly what triggered the notification and where to start reading. We've improved this experience so that notifications and other app deep links will scroll you to the correct place. Triaging notifications on the go should now feel much faster and reliable!

We've added enhanced support for CITATION.cff files to GitHub. CITATION.cff files are plain text files with human- and machine-readable citation information, and with this new feature, GitHub parses this information into convenient formats such as APA and BibTeX that can be copied by others.

Under the hood, we’re using the ruby-cff RubyGem to parse the contents of the CITATION.cff file and build a citation string that is then shown in the GitHub user interface. Special thanks to the gem creators @sdruskat @jspaaks and @hainesr who worked with us to build this.
