As a remote-only company, we have to be incredibly intentional about how we communicate with each other. One of the ways we keep each other informed and maintain transparency across the company is through our functional group updates.

Today we are releasing versions 8.15.4, 8.14.6, and 8.13.11 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).
These versions contain important security fixes, and we recommend that all affected GitLab installations be upgraded to one of these versions. Additionally, the 8.15.4 version resolves a number of regressions and bugs in last month's 8.15 release.
When developing a product, it’s easy to assume that users are just like ourselves. If we rely on our assumptions to lead what and how we develop, there is a risk of creating a product that may only work for a segment of users. A more analytical approach is necessary for understanding the needs of all users, which is paramount to successful user experience (UX).
Today we are releasing version 8.15.3 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).
This version resolves a number of regressions and bugs in the recent 8.15 release.
This version includes a migration which will rename projects that became inaccessible in version 8.15 due to reserved names. We would have preferred to do this in the monthly release rather than a patch release, but weighed against inaccessible projects we believe it's a reasonable tradeoff.
A bunch of us on the GitLab team have known for a while just how important review apps are. Even though this wasn’t something that a lot of customers asked for, we knew we had to tackle it because of how we'd seen it transform a developer's flow. We also knew that tightly integrating it into GitLab would make it even better. Although our aspirations for the feature started out gigantic and magical, we ultimately constrained them to the practical and concrete. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how we iterated and shipped Review Apps over the last 3 releases.
The GitLab interview process, like our company, is remote first. As a result, our recruiting team and hiring managers spend lots of time meeting candidates via video calls. Video chats are an important part of our daily culture and a great way to connect with our teammates, but they can also be a confusing, uncomfortable, and stress-inducing component of an interview.
The wider community asked us open source GitLab pages. Inspired by the holiday-spirit we're happy to bring GitLab Pages to the Community Edition (CE) of GitLab.
