Codespaces now automatically creates more user friendly names

We've gotten a lot of feedback from users that it's hard to differentiate multiple codespaces in the same repo, especially if they're on the same branch. To make it a little easier to tell codespaces apart, we've started automatically creating "friendly" (and fun) names for your codespaces.


If you don't like our names, we're also working on the ability for users to re-name their codespaces.

For more information on Codespaces, see "GitHub Codespaces overview".

GitHub Advanced Security customers can now dry run custom secret scanning patterns at the repository level. Dry runs allow admins to review and hone their patterns before publishing them and generating alerts.

Admins can compose a pattern then 'Save and dry run' to retrieve results from their repository. The scans are fast – typically just a few seconds – but GitHub will also notify admins via email when dry run results are ready. Organization and enterprise-level dry runs will follow shortly.
