Automatic redirects for renamed repositories

To help API clients gracefully handle renamed repositories, the API now automatically redirects to the repository’s new location.

Our thanks goes out to everyone that tried out this enhancement during the preview period. During the preview period, you needed to provide a custom media type in the Accept header to opt-in to the redirects. Now that the preview period has ended, you no longer need to specify this custom media type.

To learn more about these redirects and how they benefit your applications, be sure to check out the preview period announcement. As always, if you have any questions, we're here to help.
