Add an issue to the current or next iteration with a quick action

Add an issue to the current or next iteration with a quick action

The /iteration quick action now accepts a cadence reference with --current or --next arguments. If your group has a single iteration cadence, you can quickly assign an issue to the current or next iteration by using /iteration --current|next. If your group contains many iteration cadences, you can specify the desired cadence in the quick action by referencing the cadence name or ID. For example, /iteration [cadence:"<cadence name>"|<cadence ID>] --next|current.

Scan result policies are now “Merge request approval policies”

As we’ve expanded capabilities of the policy type to support overriding project settings and enforce approval requirements, we’ve updated the policy name to the more apt “merge request approval policy”.

Merge request approval policies do not replace or conflict with existing merge request approval rules, instead providing Ultimate tier customers the ability to create global enforcement across projects through policies managed by central security and compliance teams - an increasingly challenging task for large-scale organizations.

Blocked users are excluded from the followers list

Blocked users are excluded from the followers list

Previously, when a user who followed you was blocked, they still appeared in the followers list of your User Profile. From 16.10, blocked users are hidden from the followers list. If the user is unblocked, they will reappear in the followers list.

Thank you @SethFalco for this community contribution!
