An overview of Releases

Releases are based on Git tags, which mark a specific point in your repository's history. Releases are ordered by the date they are created on GitHub Enterprise.

Note: A tag date may be different than a release date since they can be created at different times.

For more information about viewing your existing tags, see "Viewing your repository's tags."

You can receive notifications when new releases are published in a repository without receiving notifications about other updates to the repository. For more information, see "Watching and unwatching releases for a repository."
