Commenting directly on a file in a pull request (not just a specific line) is now available in public beta!
With this capability you can now comment on deleted, binary (including images), and renamed files in a pull request. You can also comment generally about a changed code file without having to attach the comment to a specific line.
To comment on any file in a pull request, click the Comment on this file button in the header of the file (next to the Viewed checkbox):
Comments on files appear in the Files Changed and Conversation tabs and can be replied to and resolved like regular review comments.
This feature is currently in public beta, with GitHub Mobile and API support coming soon.
Join the discussion and let us know what you think!
