The 2.16.6 update is a small update, targeting a few behind-the-scenes bug fixes, and applying OS-level security patches.
Notable Bug Fixes
- Release assets uploaded via the Releases API would fail if the asset is larger than 1GB.
- Some pull requests and issues were purged completely when restoring the repository right after deleting it.
- When creating a new repository, default repository visibility input could have the wrong value selected.
- Links to the security alerts help documentation were incorrect.
We will be applying the patch at 5:00 PM EST on April 12.
