You can compare GitLab with the more famous GitHub, but contains some subtle differences. It is an environment for managing Git repositories on-premises and is released under the MIT Expat license and developed in Ruby on Rails. It is available in three versions, namely the free-to-use Community Edition and two paid Premium and Ultimate editions, with more features aimed at large businesses. The different flavors are on this page explained. The development team has released GitLab 14.0.1 with the following changes:

Important notes on upgrading
This version does not include any new migrations, and for multi-node deployments, 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-reconfigure file, which is only used for updates.
