GitLab 8.4.1 Released

Today we are releasing version 8.4.1 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This update includes several security fixes for gem dependencies, including Rails itself, and is a recommended upgrade for all installations.

It includes the following changes:

  • CE/EE: Apply security updates for Rails (, rails-html-sanitizer (1.0.3), and Nokogiri ( (!2603)
  • CE/EE: Fix redirect loop during import (!2606)
  • CE/EE: Fix diff highlighting for all syntax themes (!2530, !2563, !2594)

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.
