GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 is now generally available

The GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 is generally available

GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 brings new capabilities to help companies build and deliver secure software. We've added over 100 features, and here are a few highlights:

  • GitHub Projects, the adaptable and flexible tool for planning and tracking work on GitHub is now available on Enterprise Server as a public beta.
  • GitHub Actions support organization-wide required workflows. You can define mandated workflows to run during the lifecycle of a repository’s pipeline.
  • Code scanning now supports Kotlin. We are launching a public beta for support of Kotlin, with this support enabled for all new code scanning users and any existing users that have already configured a Java analysis.
  • The Management Console now supports multiple users. We are introducing a multi-user concept with a user management interface to the Management Console to allow admins to invite new users with different types of access roles.

To learn more about about GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8, read the release notes, and download it now.

You can now designate different types of credits to users who contribute to GitHub security advisories.

These new credit types mirror those in the CVE 5.0 schema:

  • finder
  • reporter
  • analyst
  • coordinator
  • remediation developer
  • remediation reviewer
  • remediation verifier
  • tool
  • sponsor
  • other

Going forward, GitHub will automatically apply the the reporter credit type to anyone credited after submitting a private vulnerability report and the analyst type to anyone credited after submitting an edit to the global Advisory Database. We've also retroactively applied those labels to previously credited individuals who took those actions.

The Custom Repository Roles REST API has moved to general availability, with a breaking change to the path used.
Previously, the API was found at /orgs/{org}/custom_roles – it has been moved to /orgs/{org}/custom-repository-roles. With organization-level custom roles in progress, we found that the custom_roles path was wasn't specific enough and could generate confusion.
The deprecated beta API will be removed from in 6 months, on September 7th, 2023.
On GitHub Enterprise Server, the API will be available at its new path in version 3.9. The previous API to list roles was added in GHES 3.4, and will be removed with the next API version.

To learn more about custom repository roles, see "About custom repository roles" and "Custom repository roles REST API".
