GitLab CI 5.1 released

Learn more about GitLab CI Release 5.1. This version contains many cool, new features.

Hi everyone!

Today we've released version 5.1 of our continuous integration server GitLab CI.

This version contains many cool, new features.

We've created a new admin page which shows all builds.

In addition, GitLab CI can now parse coverage information from builds and will show this on Merge Requests in GitLab and on the build page.

You don't always want to trigger a CI build with every push. With GitLab CI 5.1, it's now possible to define a list of branches that should be ignored by GitLab CI.

You can find a more detailed list of changes here

Builds page.

You can now get an overall picture of the runners, which is useful if you have to make decisions on the amount of runners you might need.


Coverage parsing.

With Coverage parsing, you will be able to track your test coverage. This feature enables you to determine which change led to a change in coverage, allowing you to take appropriate action.
