Today we are announcing the general availability (GA) of roadmaps in GitHub Projects!
🗺 Roadmaps for all
Since we announced the public beta of roadmaps earlier this year, we've shipped exciting updates that allow you to quickly adjust your roadmaps and visualize and track work with important milestones and dates, alongside lots of bug fixes and improvements. Thank you to everyone who participated in the beta for all of the feedback! 💖
To get started with a roadmap, select the roadmap layout when creating a new project, or create a new roadmap in an existing project by selecting "Roadmap" in the view options menu.
📍 Track important dates with roadmap markers
If you are using milestones to track progress for larger bodies of work,
iteration fields to plan out your weeks and months, or
date fields for important deadlines, roadmap markers help you and your team keep track of important upcoming dates. Configure these from the
Markers menu to make sure all of your important dates are visible on your roadmap.

Plans often change, and so can your roadmaps! Quickly make edits to your roadmap items by dragging and dropping them to a different date or iteration, or moving them to another status or team.
