I'm however trying to set it up and I can't seem to get it to work and the documentation is pretty vague for this feature https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user- ... ntegration

The first step in the documentation says:
1. Set "Updates configuration file URL" to a GitHub updates URL

I am assuming by Github updates URL you mean the url to an updates config file in github?
What information does that config file need to contain?
I have tried, using an empty file, using a file with just ;aiu; on the first line and using just my old updates config file.
I was also excited about this new feature (been using AI for years, great to see it keep surprising me) and would immediately like to start using it.

I also had no idea what to put in GitHub updates URL.

Can you specify in detail as an example, what URL from the repository I should use?

EDIT: I leave my reply here, but really thorough looking example is in Sample Projects section of the Forum - about GitHub Updater Integration:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=45614

Your team never disappoints :-)
