Dependency Graph, Dependabot Alerts, and Advisory Database now support Swift advisories

Starting today, you will now receive Dependabot alerts for vulnerabilities associated with your Swift dependencies.

The GitHub Advisory Database now includes curated Swift advisories. This brings the Advisory Database to twelve supported ecosystems, including: Composer (PHP), Erlang, GitHub Actions, Go, Maven, npm, NuGet, pip, Pub, RubyGems and Rust.

The dependency graph now supports detecting Package.resolved files. Swift dependencies from these files will be displayed within the dependency graph section in the Insights tab.

Dependabot security updates support will be added at a later date.

For securely enabling OpenID Connect (OIDC) in your reusable workflows, we are now making the permissions more restrictive.

If you need to fetch an OIDC token generated within a reusable (called) workflow that is outside your enterprise/organization, then the permissions setting for id-token should now be explicitly set to write at the caller workflow level or in the specific job that calls the reusable workflow.

id-token: write # This is required for requesting the JWT

This change would ensure that the OIDC token generated in the called workflow is allowed to be consumed in the caller workflows only when intended.

Today's Changelog brings you board column limits, an improved item menu to move your board items and updates to Issue hierarchy powered by tasklists!

🔢 Board column limits

You can now set column limits on the board layout to help you limit your work in progress as well as promote focus on the items that really matter. Column limits are based off of the number of items in a column, and are unique to each board view.

To configure a limit, set the value from the column's ... menu. If you exceed the limit, the value will be highlighted in red.

As always, we'd love to hear from you! Let us know your feedback in our community discussion.

Updated menu to move board items

Following our support for bulk updates and keyboard shortcuts, we've made it even easier to move the items on your boards. Select the item ... menu to move an item to the top or bottom of a column, or to a different column altogether.

➕ Add tasklist button

You may have noticed a new button has appeared on issues and the projects side-panel! You can now easily add tasklists to your issues without ever having to enter your issue's Markdown.

📁 Drag and drop improvements in table layout

Items can be dragged into collapsed groups in the table layout. Items can also be dragged and dropped across groups when sorting is enabled.

🏗️ Export project view as a CSV file

You can now download a view by selecting the view menu and clicking Download CSV.

👀 Upcoming change to insights

Historical charts will no longer support group by values. We will be phasing historical charts out over the next couple of months and no new accounts will be added to the existing support.
