Increased custom repository roles per organization

Organizations on with an enterprise plan can now create 5 custom repository roles, an increase from the previous limit of 3. This increase will also appear in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9.

For more information about creating and assigning custom roles for repositories, see "About custom repository roles".

In June 2022 we updated fork capabilities to include forking a repository into the same organization as its upstream repository, forking internal repositories to enterprise organizations, and for enterprise owners to limit where forks can be created. This opened up a lot of new possibilities for collaboration!

We recently updated fork capabilities again to unblock an additional workflow: fork repositories into another organization more than once. Before, when you tried to fork a repository into another organization that already had a fork of that repository, your option to finish forking into that organization was grayed out and GitHub let you know that a fork already exists in the target organization. With this update, you will have the option to continue forking it using a unique name.

Back in November 2022 we announced the public beta for Kotlin analysis. We continue to invest in Kotlin and we now support Kotlin 1.8.0 analysis in beta.

If you have any feedback or questions, please use this discussion thread or open an issue in the open source CodeQL repository if you encounter any problems.

Kotlin beta support is available by default in code scanning, the CodeQL CLI, and the CodeQL extension for VS Code. GitHub Enterprise Server (GHES) version 3.9 will include this beta release.
