Is there an update in the pipeline to deal with the new authentication requirement for GitHub?

 

Quote GitHub "Beginning August 13, 2021, we will no longer accept account passwords when authenticating Git operations and will require the use of token-based authentication, such as a personal access token (for developers) or an OAuth or GitHub App installation token (for integrators) for all authenticated Git operations on GitHub.com. You may also continue using SSH keys where you prefer."

 

This will create massive issues for my classroom.

DW already supports using the token, but it's a bit strange feeling to set it up.

The steps needed to get the token log-in working are given by Adobe here...

Can you elaborate more about why this will "create massive problems?"

Any app that only does username and password access to git for its built in git comits will not work on that date and such apps will require updates before then to support the change.

I do not use DW but it is only a path, username and password setup for this correct? And I am guessing the OP has not found any information from Adobe about updates to support the changes?

To be honest, I don't use Git versioning inside DW. 

 

Below is what I found in Adobe's Helpx and UserVoice.
