GitHub Projects Roadmap
Roadmap provides the next level visualisation of your GitHub projects. Alongside tables and boards, you can create a roadmap view to visualise your work items across a timespan, plan and track a body of work, or watch the progress towards a deadline. With the full picture of timing and progress, you can easily communicate with all stakeholders to keep them up to date.
GitHub Actions Importer
GitHub Actions Importer helps users plan and execute migrations from their former CI/CD tool to GitHub Actions so you can get up and running faster. It’s distributed as a Docker container, and an extension to the official GitHub CLI. It automates a large portion of the migration process for even a large CI/CD footprint, saving you from tedious and error-prone manual labour.
GitHub Actions Importer will be free to any GitHub customer, no professional services contract required.

New views for GitHub Security
Security overview’s new risk and coverage views provide greater visibility for GitHub Enterprise users into their security posture and risk analysis. The coverage view gives visibility into enablement across all repositories and is complemented by the risk view that gives visibility into all alerts across these repositories.
