GitLab 10.8 released with incremental rollouts, plus open source push mirroring
We’re super excited to share a host of awesome additions now available in GitLab 10.8! We’ve improved release automation, sped up security vulnerability remediation, open sourced a highly paid paid feature, and more.
Releasing new features always comes with a bit of anxiety. Even with stringent pre-release testing, a change to your production code base can result in unforeseen effects. Our new Incremental Rollouts feature helps developers to develop a new subset of users. Instead of rolling out your entire user base at once, incremental rollouts lets you gradually expand your Kubernetes pods. If problems do occur, you can roll back without affecting the entire user base. We’re excited to deliver and manage the unexpected,
When we first released Push Mirroring it was done as a paid feature . Since then, it has been one of the features that is most requested to be moved into our open source codebase. We take these requests seriously, as well as open source features as good stewardship . Today, we’re happy to share that Push Mirroring has been open sourced !
This opens up a few key use cases for GitLab Core users including freelance development and migration. Freelance developers can now mirror each of their clients repos. While folks migrating to GitLab from other git-based repositories can now take advantage of the migration path.
Whenever possible, we like to open source to not only encourage greater use of GitLab, but also to encourage more folks to contribute to open source software .
Keeping track of vulnerabilities without automation can be next to impossible. GitLab’s built-in security functionality includes SAST DAST container scanning and dependency scanning to keep you on top of vulnerabilities and ship secure code. And today, we’re improving the experience.
When a vulnerability appears in a report you will have it if it is a false positive. Now with Interactive Security Reports you’ll have the ability to remediate it. By enabling users to take action on vulnerabilities, we can help developers ship better, safer code.
