GitHub blog brings us a piece of exciting news – now you can add more attachment types to comments. The list is no longer limited by images alone. Now you can attach Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, as well as plain text and PDF documents. This feature alone will make GitHub Issues into a much more viable bug tracking option for many projects and companies.
