Notifications have been entirely reworked to provide fine-grained control on what users receive in their inbox.
In order to achieve this, a new
Notifications page has appeared inside repository settings where you can select what type of notifications you want:
For each type, you can choose to receive notifications from maintainers only, from everyone or to not receive any.
You will only receive notifications from new activity on issues and pull requests when you're subscribed. On the issue page, in the activity section, a new dropdown has been added to choose issue subscribers:
You will be automatically subscribed when you open an issue / pull request, you post a comment, you review a pull request, you're assigned or requested as a reviewer.
Still in the repository
Notifications settings page, at the bottom, you will find all the issues you're subscribed to with a button to quickly unsubscribe.
Notifications page has also been added in the organization settings where you will find the repositories you're watching and also, a quick unsubscribe.
Some new notifications have been added for issues and pull requests activity:
Unarchived => An issue has been archived / unarchived
Unlocked => An issue has been locked / unlocked
Transferred => An issue has been transferred to another repository
Subscribed => Someone subscribed you to an issue / pull request
Mentions notifications now works inside comment, review, issue / pull request body and release body. Also, if you made a typo and edit the body to mention someone, a notification will be sent.
When importing a repository for the first time, every user who commented, created issues, ... will be automatically subscribed. Also, after an import is done, every maintainer will receive an
Imported notification with a link to configure notifications.
