GitLab 8.0.4 Released

Oct 6, 2015

Today we are releasing version 8.0.4 for Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

It includes the following fixes:

Omnibus-gitlab packages note: Before announcing this release, inital set of packages that was built contained an error. We've noticed this and yanked the packages(version 8.0.4-ce.0). Sadly, the packages were publicly available before this blogpost was live so if you installed/upgraded your GitLab in the timeframe(approx 12:00PM-12:45PM CET on Oct. 06, 2015.) where the broken packages were available, you will run into a SyntaxError during installation. Run sudo apt-get update to get the correct version of the package (8.0.4-ce.1) and install the package again with sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce (or gitlab-ee).

Upgrade barometer

This version does not include any new migrations, and should not require any downtime.

Please be aware that by default the Omnibus packages will stop, run migrations, and start again, no matter how “big” or “small” the upgrade is. This behavior can be changed by adding a /etc/gitlab/skip-auto-migrations file.
