Today's update brings the ability to set an allowlist for languages within the IntelliJ extension, quickly switch to an annual GitHub Copilot for Individuals plan, and the private preview of code referencing.
Select languages setting within IntelliJ
The previous disabledLanguages configuration is replaced with a new, more flexible languageAllowList configuration. This change allows enabling or disabling all languages at once using the * wildcard.
An easier way manage your Copilot for Individuals trial and plan
We've heard confusion from users on how to switch between monthly and annual billing. We want you to feel fully in control of your GitHub Copilot plan so we've updated the Plans and Usage page to make it easier to swap between your plan options. Just head down to the Copilot plan section and hit the Manage subscription button to see your options.
We've also added the option to activate your Copilot trial directly from this page and while we'd hate to see you go, if you find that Copilot isn't for you during your trial, you can quickly cancel it before it converts into a paid plan.
Try out code referencing [Private Beta]!
Last week, we announced our private beta for code referencing in Copilot. Learn more by heading to our blog post or join the waitlist today!
When the “Automatically verify if a secret is valid” setting is enabled on a repository, users will see a “Verify secret” button on the alert page. This sends the secret to our relevant partner provider to see if the secret is active and updates the status on the alert and index pages.
As we work with our partners to add support for more secrets, we'll update the "Validity check" column in the documented supported secrets list.
If you are using the Dependabot grouped version updates feature (currently in public beta), you can now tell Dependabot to ignore updates in the group (similar to how you can do it for Dependabot's individual updates). While closing a grouped pull request will still not create ignore conditions, you can use Dependabot comment commands to tell Dependabot to ignore certain updates in the group – either a specific minor update, a specific major update, or all updates for one dependency.
On a grouped pull request, you can now also tell Dependabot to stop ignoring certain updates that you have already ignored. By commenting @dependabot unignore, you can specify either to stop ignoring a specific range of updates, all updates for a specific dependency, or all updates for every dependency in the group. Dependabot will now also list in the pull request body all the ignore conditions it used to build the pull request. Alternatively, you can comment @dependabot show <dependency-name> ignore conditions and Dependabot will list the ignore conditions for that dependency.
