So what’s new?
[GitHub Beta Feature Opportunity]: API Versioning Private Beta The current version of GitHub’s REST API is v3 and has been for over 10 years. Moving forward, we want to introduce a new versioning approach to the REST API that uses the YYYY-MM-DD API version-naming scheme and which indicates the date the API version was released. We’re looking to collect feedback until the end of May 2022. By providing your opinion, you will be able to help influence the direction of API versioning at its earliest stages.
Email us at email@example.com with the subject line “API Versioning Beta: [Your Company Name]” if you would like to provide feedback on API versioning
New GitHub Issue closed reasons Last year we introduced updates to our issue icons and colors along with the commitment to address your feedback on showing the reason why an issue had been closed. Today we are starting to roll out a preview of issue closed reasons to a small group of users. Your repository should have been feature flagged in, let us know if you have any questions!

Secure your API tokens by joining the GitHub secret scanning program We’re continuing to expand our secret scanning program. If your service issues API keys or other secrets end up committed in code, we can help you detect them if/when they’re ever leaked on GitHub. For example, via the secret scanning program we notify AWS when their credentials are found in public repos, allowing them to automatically protect their users. [Find out more about secret scanning]

Partner-owned documentation to docs.github.com A paved path now exists for our partners to contribute and maintain documentation on docs.github.com. This provides an opportunity for our partners to describe how their tools work with GitHub. [Open an issue using the appropriate template]
Integrating with code scanning A new pattern guide on how to integrate with code scanning is now available on our Partner Resources tab, applicable to all partners with a SAST offering. If your team has a static analysis tool, we built a new pattern guide on how to integrate with code scanning. It shows you how you can surface security vulnerabilities directly in the GitHub UI before developers deploy to production. [Our new guide]
