GitLab 8.0.4 Released

Learn more about GitLab Release 8.0.4 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE)

Today we are releasing version 8.0.4 for Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

It includes the following fixes:

  • CE/EE: Fix Message-ID header to be RFC 2111-compliant to prevent e-mails being dropped
  • CE/EE: Fix referrals for :back and relative URL installs
  • CE/EE: Fix anchors to comments in diffs
  • CE/EE: Remove CI token from build traces
  • CE/EE: Fix "Assign All" button on Runner admin page
  • EE: Fix multi-project setup for Jenkins

Omnibus-gitlab packages note: Before announcing this release, initial set of packages that was built contained an error. We've noticed this and yanked the packages(version 8.0.4-ce.0). Sadly, the packages were publicly available before this blogpost was live so if you installed/upgraded your GitLab in the timeframe(approx 12:00PM-12:45PM CET on Oct. 06, 2015.) where the broken packages were available, you will run into a SyntaxError during installation. Run sudo apt-get update to get the correct version of the package (8.0.4-ce.1) and install the package again with sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce (or gitlab-ee).

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.
