See when a Pull Request is editable by maintainers

Screenshot of indicator that Pull Request is editable

You can now see when a Pull Request author has enabled "Allow edits by maintainers," so you can get started with your own edits faster. A green checkbox in the right column will indicate when the setting has been enabled.

GitHub secret scanning protects users by searching repositories for known types of secrets. By identifying and flagging these secrets, our scans help prevent data leaks and fraud.

We have partnered with WakaTime to scan for their tokens and help secure our mutual users on public repositories. WakaTime tokens allow users to programmatically access their WakaTime code statistics. GitHub will forward access tokens found in public repositories to WakaTime, who will immediately revoke the leaked token and email the token's owner with instructions on next steps. You can read more information about WakaTime tokens here.

GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan for WakaTime tokens and block them from entering their private and public repositories with push protection.

Today’s changelog brings you the addition of colors and descriptions for single-select fields, as well as improvements to both roadmaps and tasklists!

🎨 Single-select field colors and descriptions

Make it easier for your team to scan projects and take action by adding color and descriptions to single select fields. To update a field, go to settings and select the pencil icon next to the custom single-select field you want to update.

🗺 Roadmaps improvements

If plans change and you need to make adjustments to your roadmap, you can now resize and move items between iterations. Drag and drop your items to quickly make your changes when using an iteration as a Date field on your roadmap.

You are also now able to resize the table in a roadmap view to create the space you need, similar to resizing a column in a table view.

Tasklists improvements

Tasklists are currently in private beta but we’re letting folks in as fast as we can. If you haven’t already, be sure to join the waitlist!

We’ve recently shipped the below improvements, so let us know what you think.
– Navigate via the side-panel when grouped by Tracked by
– Open and navigate in the side-panel by clicking the Tracks completion pill
– Automatically update your filter by clicking on the “Tracked by” text in the Tracked by field in board layout

Bug fixes and improvements

  • Leverage copyProjectV2 in the GraphQL API to copy a project
  • Manually reorder items on a sorted table view
  • Edit single-select fields directly from a board column with the new Edit details menu option
  • Auto-save single-select field changes in project settings
