Code released before it’s ready might be good for meeting deadlines, but that’s about all it’s good for. Most software products today are in a continual state of development, testing and release, so making sure you’re only shipping code that’s truly ready is both challenging and critical.
GitLab is designed to provide you actionable feedback in different stages of your application lifecycle, and on different timescales.
With 9.1, GitLab introduces Canary Deployments. This allows you to deploy new code to a small portion of your fleet, providing you an opportunity to revert with minimal impact if something goes wrong. If a problem is detected, you can quickly revert, minimizing the impact on your users. This is immediate production feedback.

Cloud-native development means moving away from monolithic apps towards microservices: causing a spike in the number of projects and making consistent and efficient application lifecycle management more important than ever.
From re-organizing teams to adopting new architectures, we're seeing a massive shift in how enterprise development teams build products. Ultimately, the goal of all of this change is to deliver amazing customer experiences, repeatedly. For most teams, a shift in the way they work will require changes to their tooling. We’re happy to have released GitLab 9.0 at a time when development teams have such a strong opportunity to change the way they deliver customer value.
For the past few years, we've run GitLab.com as our free SaaS offering, featuring unlimited public and private repositories, unlimited contributors, and access to key features, like issue tracking, code review, CI, and wikis. None of those things are changing! We're committed to providing an integrated solution that supports the entire software development lifecycle at a price where everyone can contribute.
