Hello everyone!

As you know, Gitlab is open source software made for collaborative coding. Today we released a new version of GitLab Community Edition (CE), with new features and bug fixes.

The MVP of this release is Drew Blessing for his contribution "Mobile UI improvement"

In this release we updated Rails to 4.0.3, which solves some security issues. For more information see rails blog post. We advise everyone to upgrade.
