Today we are releasing versions 8.11.7, 8.10.10 and 8.9.10 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

Version 8.11.7 contains a security fix for GitLab, plus fixes for minor regressions. Version 8.10.10 and 8.9.10 only contain the security fix.

Please read on for more details.

  • CE/EE: Avoid conflict with admin labels when importing GitHub labels. (!6158)
  • CE/EE: Restores fieldName to allow only string values in gl_dropdown.js. (!6234)
  • CE/EE: Allow the Rails cookie to be used for API authentication. (#18302)

  • EE: Refactor Protected Branches dropdown. (!687)
  • EE: Fix mirrored projects allowing empty import urls. (!700)

Information disclosure through gon.private_token JavaScript variable

The private user token was available through the gon.private_token JavaScript variable, leading to a potential security risk since it could be stolen through XSS or other attacks. See the issue for more information.

Upgrade barometer

This version has no 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.
