We’ve been working hard over the last few months, and are happy to announce the latest release of GitHub Enterprise. It includes some exciting new Enterprise-specific features, as well as a set of features integrated from GitHub.com.
GitHub Enterprise now includes a new UI for interacting with your repositories that’s been available on GitHub.com for a while. It’s designed to focus on your content and tries to get out of the way and let you get your day-to-day work done.
GitHub Enterprise now supports LDAP group authentication. This means that you can specify your Domain Base and then restrict who can login using groups rather than OUs. You can add as many groups as you like. In fact, you can even set an admin group where members are automatically given Site Admin permissions on the installation.
You can also view all LDAP users who should have access and create them if they haven’t already tried logging in:
Last week we added two-factor authentication to GitHub.com. With today’s release, this feature is now available in GitHub Enterprise, including full support for TOTP in applications like Google Authenticator (available for iOS and Android phones).
CSV rendering is now available so you can view these files in an easy to read format. Try searching them too!
If your installation has been languishing without avatars for a while now, good news! Identicons are shipping with this release of Enterprise, so prepare yourself for a much more colorful experience.
Need to view a Pull Request linked to from a notification while away from your desk? Not a problem! GitHub Enterprise now supports mobile views.
We’ve added collectd to the appliance so you can send graph data to an external server and better monitor server health and performance. This data is also included in Support Bundles so we can better help diagnose server-side problems.
GitHub.com has had file size limits for a while now. This release includes soft limits for files over 50MB. Unlike GitHub.com, no pushes will be rejected right now.
remote: warning: Large files detected. remote: warning: File big_file is 55.00 MB; this is larger than GitHub Enterprise's recommended maximum file size of 50 MB
The new version of Gist has been available on GitHub.com for a while now. Starting with this release we’re including the updated Gist in Enterprise!
Along with a variety of general improvements and adjustments, this new release also includes the following features from GitHub.com:
