GitHub Enterprise 2.8 will be deprecated as of November 9, 2017. That means that no patch releases will be made, even for critical security issues, after this date. For better performance, improved security, and new features, upgrade to the newest version of GitHub Enterprise as soon as possible.
We incorrectly redirect to the dashboard if you accessed GitHub Enterprise using an alias while in private mode. This might happen if you set a fully qualified domain name but the subdomain resolves correctly.
Images uploaded to issues save with an absolute URL, so they can be broken if the hostname changes.
On a freshly set up GitHub Enterprise without any users, an attacker could create the first admin user.
Custom firewall rules aren't maintained during an upgrade.
svn checkout may timeout while the repository data cache is being built. In most cases, subsequent
svn checkout attempts will succeed.
Git LFS tracked files uploaded through the web interface are incorrectly added directly to the repository.
GitHub Enterprise clustering can not be configured without https.
Deleting a search index doesn't delete all associated metadata, which are then incorrectly reused if a new search index is created. This causes search index repair jobs to be reported as finished in the site admin when they were not.
Upgrading a high availability environment from a 2.10 release to 2.11.0 could fail with the following error: (updated 2017-09-14)
