GitHub Upgrade – 2.16.8

The 2.16.8 update is a small update, targeting a few minor bugs and one security patch.

Notable Bug Fixes

  • In certain cases, when a user would try to authorize their account through the OAuth web application flow, not all of the requested scopes would appear on the authorization page.
  • When using the quote reply feature ~strikethrough~ text was not preserved and suggested changes were duplicated.
  • Using ghe-migrator, an import would fail if an attachment file was missing from the export archive.

We will be applying the patch at 5:00 PM EST on May 10.
