Officially released today, GitHub Desktop 3 is specifically designed to help streamline developer workflows. Several existing features have been enhanced in this update, including suppressing, reordering, or modifying commits, significantly improving Git operations.
One of the core enhancements of this update is the ability to review the status of your pull requests, which in turn helps developers confirm that the code is actually ready for production.

The official blog post reads: “Just click on the badge with the pull request number to start sneaking in on inspections, work, and steps to better understand and resolve any issues you may be experiencing.” You still can’t find the reason why the check failed? Don’t worry! You can rerun your checks to fix this problem. You can rerun your checks and give them another chance to succeed. Users can now also rerun failed or individual GitHub Action checks.”
GitHub Desktop 3.0 also provides support for high signal notifications. Essentially, this will help users sift through the multitude of notifications that keep popping up, and instead, it will only alert users to important notifications that occur in the repository where the user is located.
Developers will also be able to get a head start in failed pull request checking, as GitHub Desktop 3 notifies them when a commit fails. It redirects the user to a new dialog box detailing what happened. In return, this makes it easier for developers to identify problems and correct them.
