Learn more about GitLab Release 8.17.1 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE)

Today we're releasing version 8.17.1 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE).

This version resolves a number of regressions and bugs in the recent 8.17 release.

If you're wondering what happened to the packages 8.17.1+(ce|ee).0 and 8.17.1+(ce|ee).1, good eye! The first version was accidentally packaged with some Javascript tooling errors that we tried to fix in the .1 version but there was an error tagging the release. The correct packages are 8.17.1+ce.2 and 8.17.1+ee.2 now.

Upgrade barometer

This version includes a migration that adds an index concurrently 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.
