How to change a release on Github point to the latest commit?

I recently released a new version of my project on Github by clicking the release button, on the right-hand side of the page. However, I found something error in my code, so, I just fixed and committed it.

Now, I would like to change my latest release in order to include my latest commit. I tried to remove the release and recreate it once again using the same tag name, however, it still points to the previous commit. I have been googling but still no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

  • What is the difference between Forking and Cloning on GitHub?
  • Git color code for contributor page
  • Retrieving Branches from GIT url using java code
  • TortoiseGit - Multiple GitHub repositories with different key pairs each
  • Squashed Pull Request on Github
  • Restore files in git repo without commit
  • Permission denied (publickey) I still get an error
  • Jenkins and Git?

    You would need to update/move the tag locally first, and force push it (as in here):

    # assuming you are in the branch referencing currently the right new commit:
    git tag -f -a <tagname>
    
    # push your new commit:
    git push 
    
    # force push your moved tag:
    git push -f --tags
    

    Then you can go on GitHub and associate new binaries with the release for that tag (which should point to the right commit).
