Nearly a year after the release of GitHub Copilot, GitHub/Microsoft have just released GitHub Copilot X. Copilot X has moved from ChatGPT 3 to ChatGPT 4 and now offers context aware conversations (it remembers what you’ve talked about and responds accordingly). The “X” part of Copilot X represent that Copilot is going to target a number of different solutions, including a new CLI version, the ability to generate pull requests and the ability to be aimed at custom documentation. These features are all currently behind a waiting list.
Details of GitHub Copilot X:
With chat and terminal interfaces, support for pull requests, and early adoption of OpenAI’s GPT-4, GitHub Copilot X is our vision for the future of AI-powered software development. Integrated into every part of your workflow.
Context aware conversations with your copilot. If you’re stuck solving a problem, ask GitHub Copilot to explain a piece of code. Bump into an error? Have GitHub Copilot fix it. It’ll even generate unit tests so you can get back to building what’s next.
Docs that feel tailored for you. Spend less time searching and more time learning, by getting personalized answers that are grounded in maintainer-written documentation, with inline citations. Load content → Ask question → Profit.
Pull requests that tell a story. GitHub Copilot keeps track of your work, suggests descriptions, and helps reviewers reason about your changes with a code walkthrough.
Take command of your CLI. Forget how to delete a tag? Ask GitHub Copilot for assistance right in your terminal. Need help with multi-step shell commands and scripting? Just explain what you want to do.
