Upgrade barometer

This version includes one new migration, but 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.

For elasticsearch users

If you use Elasticsearch please run following command after upgrade:

# Omnibus installations
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:elastic:reindex_model MODEL=Note

# Installations from source
bundle exec rake gitlab:elastic:reindex_model MODEL=Note RAILS_ENV=production
