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.

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).
