Bug Fixes


Backups and Disaster Recovery

GitHub Enterprise Server 2.19 requires at least GitHub Enterprise Backup Utilities 2.19.0 for Backups and Disaster Recovery.

Upcoming Deprecation of GitHub Enterprise Server 2.16

GitHub Enterprise Server 2.16 will be deprecated as of January 22, 2020. 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 Server as soon as possible.

Upcoming Deprecation of Adding New SSH-DSS Keys

The addition of new SSH-DSS keys will be removed in GitHub Enterprise Server 2.20.0.

Upcoming Deprecation of the Legacy Gravatar Service

Support for using an external service for Avatars was deprecated in GitHub Enterprise Server 2.1.0. At the time, functionality was implemented to copy avatars from the external service to the GitHub Enterprise Server and the configuration options remained in Enterprise Manage for instances configured with an external service prior to the deprecation. This functionality and configuration will be removed from GitHub Enterprise Server 2.20.0.
