No event is fired when a release is updated

Currently only  published events are fired.

A release update, like changing the type from prerelease to release for instance, doesn’t fire anything preventing us to rely on it to trigger workflows with Github actions.

Any news on when/if release update events will be fired?

New actions for releaseEvent have been added : https://developer.github.com/changes/, but not for prerelease -> release (only for release -> prerelease).

Looks like this has since been updated to support a released action when updating from prerelease -> released!
