GitLab 8.5.7 Released

Today we are releasing version 8.5.7 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This version raises the minimum required Git version to 2.7.3 to address the recent remote code execution vulnerability. The Omnibus packages have been updated to include this new version.

  • Omnibus: Update Git to 2.7.3 (!687)
  • CE/EE: Bump Git version requirement to 2.7.3 (!3240)

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.


To update, check out our update page.
