GitLab CE 6.2 released!

Hello everyone!

Today we release a new minor GitLab version, with new features, bug fixes and stability improvements. GitLab is open source software to collaborate on code. The main feature of the 6.2 release is fully browsable public projects.

Public projects

As of version 6.2 a user can visit public project pages (files, issues, wiki, etc.) without having a GitLab account. Make sure you do not store private information in a public project wiki or issue tracker. :)


User profile

In this version, we have made significant changes to the user's profile.


UI improvements

We have a fresh sign-in page for GitLab 6.2. :)


Admin page


And much more. Just update to GitLab 6.2 and enjoy!

This release's most valuable person (MVP) is Steven Thonus for contributing the avatar upload feature.







For a full list of changes see the CHANGELOG.

If you are setting up a new GitLab installation follow the Setup Guide.

For update instructions see the Update Guide.

For LDAP group support and more have a look at the feature list of GitLab Enterprise Edition. Access to GitLab Enterprise Edition is included with a subscription. No time to upgrade or maintain Gitlab yourself? also offers upgrade and installation services as part of a subscription or alternatively on a consultancy basis.

Updated on October 22 2013 to add the MVP and a description of GitLab in the opening paragraph.
