GitHub Enterprise now includes Projects, code review, and profile timelines

Jupyter notebook in GitHub Enterprise.


GitHub today is announcing the release of GitHub Enterprise 2.8. It comes with some of the features that came to GitHub.com in September.

Perhaps most importantly, now GitHub’s Projects tool is available through the Enterprise version of GitHub, which can be deployed in companies’ on-premises data centers or on top of public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Projects is a spin on the kanban board that Trello has popularized. GitHub competitor GitLab recently introduced something similar called Issue Boards.

Since the introduction of GitHub Projects, people have started more than 100,000 of them, a GitHub spokesperson told VentureBeat in an email.

GitHub Enterprise 2.8 also comes with the ability to do code reviews on incoming pull requests. GitHub.com users have approved more than 1.5 million pull requests with code reviews since it launched, the spokesperson wrote.

Users’ profiles also look different, because now there’s a timeline that shows significant activity.

But that’s not all. GitHub is also adding support for Jupyter notebooks in its Enterprise version — something that arrived on GitHub.com in 2015.

“Producing and sharing insights from data on GitHub is a common challenge for researchers and data scientists,” GitHub wrote in a blog post. “Jupyter notebooks make it easy to capture those data-driven workflows that combine code, equations, text, and visualizations. And now they render in all your GitHub repositories.”

GitHub Enterprise costs $2,500 per 10 users per year.

Existing EV batteries could be recharged five times faster

Lithium-ion batteries have massively improved in the last half-decade, but there are still issues. The biggest, especially for EVs, is that charging takes too long to make them as useful as regular cars for highway driving. Researchers from the University of Warwick (WMG) have discovered that we may not need to be so patient, though. They developed a new type of sensor that measures internal battery temperatures and discovered that we can probably recharge them up to five times quicker without overheating problems.

Overcharging a lithium-ion battery anode can lead to lithium buildup, which can break through a battery's separator, create a short-circuit and cause catastrophic failure. That can cause the electrolyte to emit gases and literally blow up the battery, so manufacturers impose strict charging power limits to prevent it.

Those limits are based on hard-to-measure internal temperatures, however, which is where the WMG probe comes in. It's a fiber optic sensor, protected by a chemical layer that can be directly inserted into a lithium-ion cell to give highly precise thermal measurements without affecting its performance.

The team tested the sensor on standard 18650 li-ion cells, used in Tesla's Model S and X, among other EVs. They discovered that they can be charged five times faster than previously thought without damage. Such speeds would reduce battery life, but if used judiciously, the impact would be minimized, said lead researcher Dr. Tazdin Amietszajew.

Faster charging as always comes at the expense of overall battery life but many consumers would welcome the ability to charge a vehicle battery quickly when short journey times are required and then to switch to standard charge periods at other times.

There's still some work to do. While the research showed the li-ion cells can support higher temperatures, EVs and charging systems would have to have "precisely tuned profiles/limits" to prevent problems. It's also not clear how battery makers would install the sensors in the cells.

Nevertheless, it shows a lot of promise for much faster charging speeds in the near future. Even if battery capacities stayed the same, charging in 5 minutes instead of 25 could flip a lot of drivers over to the green side.
