Increased concurrency for 2-core Linux & Windows Hosted Actions runners for Enterprise Plans

Starting on March 08, 2023, GitHub Enterprise customers using 2-core GitHub-hosted Linux and Windows runners will have the job concurrency on Windows/Linux increased from 180 to 500.

Enterprise customers need to make no changes to take advantage of this increased concurrency. If you require higher concurrency on 2-Core GitHub-hosted Linux and Windows runners than 500, please reach out to GitHub support.

Many users use our Slack integration to know what’s new in their repo’s Discussion. However, for large repos, these notifications can get overwhelming. Today, we’re introducing the ability to subscribe to specific Discussion categories in Slack. By default, when users subscribe to a Discussion, they subscribe to all categories. With the new command, we’re introducing a way to add category filters:

/github subscribe <org_name>/<repo_name> discussions:{category:"<category1>","<category2>"}

Users can also unsubscribe a Slack channel from previously set category filters with a similar command:

/github unsubscribe <org_name>/<repo_name> discussions:{category:"<category1>"}

Note: By default, if no category filters were added, the app will subscribe to all categories in the Discussion. Similarly, if you remove all category filters, the app will return to its default state of being subscribed to all categories. To unsubscribe from Discussions entirely, users can continue to use the unsubscribe command on Discussions, as shown below:

/github unsubscribe <org_name>/<repo_name> discussions
