Today we are announcing the public beta of roadmaps in GitHub Projects! 🎉
Last November at GitHub Universe, we announced the private beta for roadmap. With your help and feedback over the last three months, we have shipped many exciting updates making it easier for you to visualize and plan your work over time, understand what is in progress or coming up next, and keep your team and stakeholders up to date.
🗺 Creating a roadmap
You can quickly build a roadmap alongside the same table and board views you already know and love.
When creating a roadmap, use existing date or iteration fields in your project to populate your items on the roadmap or create a new field from the Date fields menu. Set the zoom level to Month, Quarter, or Year depending on how granular you need your roadmap to be.
➕ Adding items and dates
Adding roadmap items works just like adding project items in any other view. Use the + Add item to search for or create a new issue, or type to create a draft placeholder. Once you’ve added the item, assign it to a specific date or within an iteration with a single click.
If plans change (which they often do!), you can adjust and move an item directly on the roadmap to reflect the new plan.
🎨 Customizing the view
Customizing your roadmap helps you create a tailored view for you and your teams. Select a group by field to segment and bucket your items by a custom field, such as status or team. This allows you to visually separate your items to understand both how they line up with each other and how long they all are expected to take.
Select a sort by field to further organize your roadmap, and specify a filter so that you only include relevant project items.
✍ Tell us what you think!
We’ve got more improvements planned but we want to hear from you! Be sure to drop a note in the discussion and let us know how we can improve! Check out the documentation for more details.
If you would like to request access for the tasklists private beta to visualize the hierarchy of your items on the roadmap, sign up on the waitlist.

We are reverting this change for now. More details to follow.
The default compression for Git archives has recently changed. As result, archives downloaded from GitHub may have different checksums even though the contents are completely unchanged.<
GitHub doesn’t guarantee the stability of checksums for automatically generated archives. These are marked with the words “Source code (zip)” and “Source code (tar.gz)” on the Releases tab. If you need to rely on a consistent checksum, you may upload archives directly to GitHub Releases.
These are guaranteed not to change.
