GitHub Actions: NODE_OPTIONS is now restricted from GITHUB_ENV

Due to security restrictions, users can no longer use GITHUB_ENV to set the NODE_OPTIONS environment variable in their workflows. Developers who have NODE_OPTIONS set as an environment variable will now receive an error: Can't store NODE_OPTIONS output parameter using '$GITHUB_ENV' command.

This change was introduced in actions/runner v2.309.0.
For more information on how to set environment variables, please see our docs here.

Repository rule insights now make finding more details about how someone merged specific code into your repos even easier.

🔍 Filter by status

If you want only to see bypassed rules, you can now filter rule insight by the status of the results.

No more scrolling through and sorting through all the insight activity to find that one bypass situation. You can now filter by All Statuses, Pass, Fail, and Bypass.

GitHub secret scanning protects users by searching repositories for known types of secrets such as tokens and private keys. By identifying and flagging these secrets, our scans help prevent data leaks and fraud.

We have partnered with MaxMind to scan for their license keys and help secure our mutual users on public repositories. MaxMind keys allow users to run queries against minFraud®, GeoIP®, and GeoLite services, and download GeoIP and GeoLite databases. GitHub will forward license keys found in public repositories to MaxMind, who will then email the user about the leaked key. You can read more information about MaxMind keys here.

All users can scan for and block MaxMind keys from entering their public repositories for free with push protection. GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan for and block MaxMind keys in their private repositories.
