GitHub Universe Reveal and Action Caches Management

10 May 2023


  • Itโ€™s happening November 8-9 in San Francisco ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
  • Call for speakers is open until June 7 ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Weโ€™re thinking of submitting the following proposals. If you have any other suggestions for us, please do reach out!
    • How to manage comprehensively manage GitHub as code at scale?
    • How to monitor GitHub Actions activity in real time?
    • How to manage a fleet of self-hosted runners for Open Source orgs?
    • How can a team of 2 manage CI for hundreds of repositories?

๐Ÿ  GitHub Actions VS Code Extension is in public beta - it makes editing GHA workflows way nicer!

๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ If youโ€™re an admin and you bypass branch protection, git will now let you know what rules were bypassed. They also made it stand out more in the UI when you bypass any rules.

โ™ป๏ธ Orgs can now be deleted via REST API. I havenโ€™t checked in a while but maybe it means we could now create an org just for testing and then clean it all up, all via API?

๐Ÿ” Private vulnerability reports are available via REST API and webhooks ๐Ÿคฉ This means we can reopen the discussion on mass-enabling private vulnerability reporting. It will enable us to periodically check for new private vulnerability reports, creating summaries and sending them to appropriate emails. cc @Alain

๐Ÿฌ New navigation is in public beta.

๐Ÿ—„๏ธ GitHub Projects now support bulk editing in table view. cc @biglep @Prithvi Shahi

๐Ÿ”• Some notification for at-team mentions can be disabled now.

๐ŸŒˆ You can now manage GitHub Actions Caches through web UI ๐Ÿ™

โฉ Webhook forwarding in GitHub CLI reached GA. Itโ€™s a great feature when you need to test GitHub webhooks.

๐Ÿค– Dependabot will now stop with rebases after 30 days of inactivity ๐Ÿ˜Œ

๐Ÿ“ GitHub announced public beta for rule sets - think generic version of branch protections that can also be applied to tags.

๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ Private vulnerability reports can be submitted through REST API.

๐Ÿงพ NPM packages can now be published together with provenance using npm publish --provenance --access public

๐Ÿงฐ Weโ€™re not using GitHub merge queues much yet but itโ€™s nice to see itโ€™s being worked on - most recently they improved API interaction with the queue and shipped a bunch of usability fixes.

๐Ÿ“ง GitHubโ€™s working on custom Deployment protection rules. The beta is currently open for GHES only.

๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ One-click codespaces setup is here. I really wish I had some time to play with codespaces more.

๐ŸŽ New macOS GitHub Actions runners (13) are available. Also, bigger macOS runners (relevant to filecoin-project only).
