Hot on the heels of GitHub Universe, we're bringing you simplified project creation and an improved experience for converting drafts into issues in repositories outside the project's organization.

Creating a project from your team or repository index page is now faster than ever! Instead of navigating to the organization page, simply use the dropdown on the Link a project button to select New project. We'll create a project and automatically link it to the team or repository from which it was created.

📤 Convert drafts into issues outside the project organization

Work often spans multiple repositories and even across organization boundaries so we want you to be able to quickly create issues in whichever repository you need, right from projects. That's why we've made it possible to convert a draft issue into an issue in any organization you have access to. When selecting the repository for your issue, type in the organization name ahead of the repository and we'll take care of the rest. We also support the @me operator if you'd like to create the issue in a personal repository.
