GitLab version 3.0 released

Good news everyone!

Today is 22th and it means we have a GitLab release today. It is our 13th release. Yippee!

Every month we give you a new version of GitLab and we will try to save this tradition. Also we will keep GitLab free and open source product in the future.

Special thanks to GitLab core team who contribute so much awesome code in GitLab.

Also thanks to GitLab co-author & core developer Valeriy Sizov. He helps me move forward even despite of all difficulties on our way.

Few quotes from core devs:

Valeriy Sizov:

GitLab is developing by developers from different parts of the world. You can trust us - we fix critical issues in 24 hours

Dmitriy Zaporozhets:

I had a dream about high-quality FOSS product I can admire - my dream come true.

Valeriy Sizov:

Our will is solid as rock. GitLab 3 is very cool but version 4 will be even better. GitLab is not an only software we are going to share with this world. We are developers and if miss something - we build it!

Dmitriy Zaporozhets:

We are going to build a best software. GitLab 3 is not an end - it is only a beginning.
