GitLab 8.0.1 released

Learn more about GitLab Release 8.0.1 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE)

Hot on the heels of today's big 8.0 release, we are releasing version 8.0.1 for Community Edition (CE), Enterprise Edition (EE), and Continuous Integration (CI).

It includes the following fixes:

  • CE/EE/CI: Improve CI migration procedure and documentation
  • EE: Correct gem dependency versions
  • EE: Re-add the "Help Text" feature that was inadvertently removed
  • Omnibus: Revert "Do not buffer with nginx git http requests"

Update (2015-09-22 22:00 UTC): Omnibus packages for this release have been updated to resolve the No resource, method, or local variable named ci_service error some of our users saw during the upgrade process. Fixed packages have a .1 Omnibus patch version (e.g., 8.0.1-ee.1 and 8.0.1-ce.1). If you've already upgraded to GitLab 8.0.1 without issue, you can safely ignore this update.

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.
