Today we are releasing version 8.15.3 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This version resolves a number of regressions and bugs in the recent 8.15 release.

This version includes a migration which will rename projects that became inaccessible in version 8.15 due to reserved names. We would have preferred to do this in the monthly release rather than a patch release, but weighed against inaccessible projects we believe it's a reasonable tradeoff.

Upgrade barometer

This version includes a post-deploy migration and should not require any downtime.

We recommend clearing the GitLab cache (gitlab-rake cache:clear) after upgrading to 8.15.3 due to the renamed projects.

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.
