Milestones can be used with Issues to mark important points in the development process, such as the completion of a particular feature or the release of a new version. For example, a problem may need to be addressed, so a Milestone can be created for addressing that problem. Then a user can create an Issue for each step or code change required for that.

Milestones can be accessed under the Issues tab, using the Milestones section.

Milestone progress is tracked (based on the number of Issues or PR's related to the Milestone). When creating a milestone, you define the name, description and target due date. That is all!

In summary, Milestones are a great project management tool to allow you to group and track work being performed in Issues, to track a set of issues to completion.
