Deprecation – security advisories in private repositories

As of today, May 15th, 2024, you will no longer be able to create security advisories in private repositories. Formerly published advisories will no longer be available.

This change does not affect security advisories in public repositories, or the advisories listed in GitHub’s open-source Advisory Database.

The enterprise support portal at has been deprecated since November 1, 2021. However, it has continued to remain accessible to view past tickets. That is now changing. In order to streamline your support experience, we are going to turn the portal off and it will no longer be accessible after May 31st, 2024.

Action required: If you have used this portal to reference old tickets not available on, we recommend that you copy any important information from those tickets to another location before the end of this month.

You must visit with a support entitled account to open new support tickets about your GitHub enterprise cloud account.

We are happy to announce the beta release of the Ubuntu 24.04 image for GitHub Actions hosted runners. To start using this in your Actions workflows, update your workflow file to include runs-on: ubuntu-24.04

    runs-on: ubuntu-24.04
      - uses: actions/checkout@v4
      - uses: actions/setup-node@v4
          node-version: '20'
      - run: npm install -g bats
      - run: bats -v

Some users may notice differences in workflows as the Ubuntu 22.04 image has different tools and tool versions, see the full list of changed software.

If you spot any issues with your workflows when using Ubuntu-24.04, or if you have feedback on the software installed on the image, please let us know by creating an issue in the runner-images repository.

While the runner image is in beta, you may experience longer queue times during peak usage hours.
