Bug Fixes


Security Fixes

Repository storage changes

Changing the repository storage layout has been improved significantly in this release, cutting down the migration time from hours to minutes. If your instance contains more than 20,000 repositories (including gists and wikis) you can now upgrade to 2.2.2.

Please refer to the "Repository storage changes" section of the 2.2.0 release notes for further advice on upgrading.

SAML response requirement changes

We've improved the validation of the SAML responses we receive. A response message must now contain a Recipient set to the Assertion Consumer Service URL, http(s)://[hostname]/saml/consume.

In addition to the Recipient attribute, GitHub Enterprise will now also verify the Destination and Audience attributes, if they are supplied in the response message.

Most SAML implementations already provide this information in their responses.
