We have a couple of great new features and improvements to the OAuth flow to announce! First off, application developers can now add full text descriptions and custom images to their applications to help communicate to potential users.

Next, we have entirely new views for allowing/denying access to your GitHub account. These views better communicate the identity of the 3rd party application and what kind of access they are requesting.
