Upgrade barometer

This release includes one minor database migration for CE and two minor migrations for EE. All the migrations can be run without causing 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.
