Now you can customize your organization's Overview page to show content dedicated to public users or members of the organization. A new member view is only visible to members of the organization and can be controlled in the sidebar to toggle between public and member view.

A README only visible to members

Similar to the public organization README that we released last year, you can now create a README that is only visible to members of your organization. In the .github-private repository the /profile/README.md will be displayed on your organization's Overview page.

Pinned private repositories

Organization owners are able to define a set of six public, private or internal repositories that are only visible to members of their organization, enabling members to quickly access popular or frequented repositories.

For more information about the new features, see "Customizing your organization's profile".

GitHub README

Organizations can now display a README.md on their profile Overview.

Start with creating a .github repository for the desired organization. Make sure it's public. Add a profile folder to your .github repository and add a README.md file to the profile folder.

The contents of your README.md file will appear on the Overview page of the organization, visible to everyone. For an example, see the GitHub Overview page or learn more in the documentation.
