GitLab 8.5.5 Released

Mar 10, 2016

Today we are releasing version 8.5.5 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This version includes a new GitLab Geo feature and fixes, several minor EE fixes as well as fixes for Todos and project lists.

Read on for all the details!

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.


To update, check out our update page.

Access to GitLab Enterprise Edition is included with a subscription. No time to upgrade GitLab yourself? Subscribers receive upgrade and installation services.
