How do I use GitHub releases to upload a JAR file? Attempts to upload a JAR result in a message that ZIP files, among others are supported. JAR files are ZIP files, just with a different extension, of course.
I see that some people have uploaded JAR files directly into repos; is this a work-around?
For example, there is a JAR file at: https://github.com/uklance/releases/tree/master/org/lazan/tapestry-offline/0.0.1
GET /repos/:uklance/:releases/releases reveals no releases.

Although GitHub does support upload of binaries, that answer is probably out of date.
The message is:
Unfortunately, we don’t support that file type. Try again with a PNG, GIF, JPG, DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, TXT, PDF, or ZIP.
It seems to be same problem as here: Can't upload APK to Github releases
