GitHub public roadmap
Our product roadmap is where you can learn about what features we're working on, what stage they're in, and when we expect to bring them to you. Have any questions or comments about items on the roadmap? Share your feedback via GitHub public feedback discussions.
The roadmap repository is for communicating GitHub’s roadmap. Existing issues are currently read-only, and we are locking conversations, as we get started. Interaction limits are also in place to ensure issues originate from GitHub. We’re planning to iterate on the format of the roadmap itself, and we see potential to engage more in discussions about the future of GitHub products and features. If you have feedback about this roadmap repository itself, such as how the issues are presented, let us know through general feedback in GitHub public feedback discussions.
Guide to the roadmap
Every item on the roadmap is an issue, with a label that indicates each of the following:
A release phase that describes the next expected phase of the roadmap item. See below for a guide to release phases.
A feature area that indicates the area of the product to which the item belongs. For a list of current product areas, see below.
A feature that indicates the feature or product to which the item belongs. For a list of current features, see below.
One or more product SKU labels that indicate which product SKUs we expect the feature to be available in. For a list of current product SKUs, see below.
One or more deployment models (cloud, server, and/or ae). Where not stated, features will generally come out Cloud first, and follow on Server and GHAE at or soon after GA.
Once a feature is delivered, the shipped label will be applied to the roadmap issue and the issue will be closed with a comment linking to the relevant Changelog post.
Release phases indicate the stages that the product or feature goes through, from early testing to general availability.
alpha: Primarily for testing and feedback
Limited availability, requires pre-release agreement. Features still under heavy development, and subject to change. Not for production use, and no documentation, SLAs or support provided.
beta: Publicly available in full or limited capacity
Features mostly complete and documented. Timeline and requirements for GA usually published. No SLAs or support provided.
ga: Generally available to all customers
Ready for production use with associated SLA and technical support obligations. Approximately 1-2 quarters from Beta.
Some of our features may still be in the exploratory stages, and have no timeframe available. These are included in the roadmap only for early feedback. These are marked as follows:
Feature in discovery phase. We have decided to build this feature, but are still figuring out how.
Feature under consideration. We are considering building this feature, and gathering feedback on it.
Release phases - For GHES
Some features may be marked with a GHES 3.X label, which indicates that the feature will also become available for Github Enterprise Server customers. Below are the release version numbers and expected release quarters (Note: these dates are subject to change).
GHES release version dates:
|Version Number||Release Quarter||Release Notes|
|3.5||Q2 2022||Release Notes|
|3.6||Q3 2022||Release Notes|
The roadmap is arranged on a project board to give a sense for how far out each item is on the horizon. Every product or feature is added to a particular project board column according to the quarter in which it is expected to ship next. Be sure to read the disclaimer below since the roadmap is subject to change, especially further out on the timeline. You'll also find an Exploratory column, which is used in conjunction with the in design and exploring release phase labels for when no timeframe is yet available.
GitHub Enterprise Server has major releases on a quarterly basis, and minor releases on a monthly basis. Once we know what version we are delivering a feature, we will update the issue to indicate that information.
