I'm often interested in watching a project but I'm not really interested in all the conversations and issues it might have, I'm mostly interested in releases coming out. Would it be possible to have more options under the Watch project button?

I just sent this to support@ (Maybe this issue could be expanded to include mentioned subscriptions?)

Feature request: subscribe to any specific page of a project

As I mentioned, it'd be amazing to subscribe receive notifications of any page of a project. I'd personally love to subscribe to just releases &/or changelogs to many projects, for instance, but may want to even subscribe to any changes in, e.g., the skins subfolder.

Thanks for an amazing service! ☺

P.S.: I'll track this via https://github.com/isaacs/github/issues/410 =)

An RSS feed for subscribing to a project release would be really cool.

This is possible already. For example go to https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/releases, have a look in the html source of the page. Search for .atom and you will find urls to feeds:
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/releases.atom
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/tags.atom
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/commits/master.atom

So you get a feed with releases with a url like:
https://github.com/USER/REPO/releases.atom

Think one extra option between 'not watching' and 'watching' would be enough, something like 'only watch releases'.

I'm a bit stunned that this hasn't been addressed yet.
There's a "Subscribe" notifications button in an issues thread, by not in releases??
The moment I star a project, I'm interested enough to know about code changes.
But instead, I have to watch, and endure an inbox flooded with issue complaints (80% from people too lazy to RTFM).
As a result, I don't watch projects, and am therefore denied one of the aspects of github that excites me the most: learning when something of great interest has been improved, and benefiting from the authors' great work.

TL/DR The ability to watch releases ONLY would be incredible useful. A subscribe button on a projects /releases page would do the trick, though @maidmaid's suggestion is even better.

For example, a project like scylla or rxjava can have hundreds of issues between releases. These have literally clogged up my email inbox even though the only thing I'm interested in is releases.

If you want to watch releases of a project that is available in a package manager like e.g.:
package-managers
you might have success with the "Subscribe to releases" feature of libraries.io:
subscribe
It will send you an email when there are new releases.
Btw: I'm not the author, maintainer of anything else of libraries.io, nor do I receive any provision or something else 😆

https://releases.netlify.com allows to receive email with updated starred projects once a day (or as soon as release is published, configurable).

Sure, I'm also waiting for Github to build such feature, but they said only the acquisition itself will finish in December..

I ended up making this a few months ago for myself: github release checker. It finds releases/tags for all repos you've starred. Once you do it the first time, you can "mark all as read". The next time you check for more, it'll only show you the new releases/tags since last time (it tracks them via local storage, no backend!).

And here's the live github pages version

It's completely client-side and doesn't require you to sign in at all. It just needs a public access api token to retrieve your stars and to make requests to check for releases.

Beware: It's not optimized at all... it makes multiple requests per repo you've starred. Not for everyone, but it fits my use case. I check it once every few days 🙂

Since I was having the same issues as you guys here, I’ve created a project of my own to solve them https://newreleases.io.

Since I’m a developer, using several different programming languages, I was not in the need only for GitHub new releases notifications, so this project supports 9 different programming/packaging platforms (GitHub, PyPi, Gems, Docker...). New release notifications can be sent out to your email and/or Slack account and there are several filtering options, even based on regex.

@kirillgroshkov I think that the problem of release notifications is better solved and accepted if they do not have to maintain and monitor they own instance of notifications service, but to rely on someone else for reliability and convenience, just as github (thanks @AlexWayfer) and other services are doing.

Opensourcing a project requires dedication and time to manage contributions that may or may not be aligned to the initial idea. On the other hand, some parts of the project is opensourced, that make sense to be opensourced, like some packages.

Having a project that is running as an easy to use service, to manage users, easily add slack integration, reliable email sending service, monitoring and other operational setups to make it reliable, is a bit different then the opensource project that needs to have clear documentation and features to run it on your own machine and have a bit different user management. GopherPit project is where I have tried that approach and it creates additional burden to the development that may not be needed. For now, it is much easier for me to maintain a web service, then an opensource project.

FYI, this isn't an "official" github repo of any kind. Take a look at the readme, the owner just tracks github requests of interest here.

I know people have contacted github about it in the past (apparently you have to send an email, github has no repo we can get to), but I kind of doubt this specific issue thread is on their radar.

In addition to @gloooom's bot, you can also use IFTTT until this (hopefully) gets implemented natively! Github creates an atom feed for a projects releases using the username/repo/releases.atom schema (for example, Atom's release feed can be found at https://github.com/atom/atom/releases.atom)

I've successfully used the rss feed as the if parameter and email as the then parameter to get notified when projects get new releases 😄

Not sure if Zapier supports something like this

This is still not possible on GitHub itself? That seems like a pretty big shortcoming to me, I would love such a feature.

An RSS feed for subscribing to a project release would be really cool.

This is possible already. For example go to https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/releases, have a look in the html source of the page. Search for .atom and you will find urls to feeds:
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/releases.atom
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/tags.atom
https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/commits/master.atom

So you get a feed with releases with a url like:
https://github.com/USER/REPO/releases.atom

Thanks, man. Added to Thunderbird. Never gonna miss another release.

Too bad so much open source still relies on Github; switched to GitLab a long time ago for lack of default features (amongst other things)
