- HIGH: An attacker could inject potentially malicious options into Git sub-commands when executed on the server. This could allow an attacker to truncate existing files on the server or execute other unintended functionality of affected Git sub-commands. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need permission to create a branch within a repository on the GitHub Enterprise Server instance. This vulnerability was reported through the GitHub Security Bug Bounty program.

- Lines in gists were not selectable.
- WireGuard replaces OpenVPN as the technology used to encrypt communication between nodes in High Availability configurations.
- Webhook payloads include the milestone object when milestones are added or removed.
- Links to all the pull requests associated with a security alert are viewable on the security alerts page.
- Users are able to update their branch with the base branch when a pull request is in draft status.
- Files marked as reviewed will be marked as unreviewed for all users that have previously reviewed the file after a new commit has been made.
- Reduced memory utilization on GitHub Enterprise Server instances.
longpoll service has been replaced with

- On a freshly set up GitHub Enterprise Server without any users, an attacker could create the first admin user.
- Custom firewall rules are not maintained during an upgrade.
- Subversion (SVN) checkout may timeout while the repository data cache is being built. In most cases, subsequent Subversion checkout attempts will succeed.
- Git LFS tracked files uploaded through the web interface are incorrectly added directly to the repository.
- Issues cannot be closed if they contain a permalink to a blob in the same repository where the file path is longer than 255 characters.
