GitLab 6.0 released!

We are glad to announce a new major release for GitLab, GitLab 6.0. GitLab is a popular open source application for git repository management through a nice easy to use web interface. Think of it as a version of GitHub that you can host on your servers. If you are not familiar with GitLab, you can take a quiack look by launching a free cloud demo server with the BitNami Cloud Launchpad (it only takes a minute and it is completely free)

In this version the GitLab team has introduced group membership as a replacement for teams improving how project permissions are handled when modifying group members. For a full list of improvements/fixes take a look at the changelog in their GitHub repository.

BitNami GitLab provides one-click installation solutions for GitLab with GitLab CI, an open-source continuous integration server closely integrated with Git and GitLab. We have just released a new version upgrading GitLab to include GitLab to 6.0 and the latest version of GitLab CI, 3.1.0. Since GitLab no longer supports using an URL prefix like /gitlab, this version of BitNami GitLab configures it in / by default.

You can download free, ready to run native installers for Linux, virtual machines and Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud images for BitNami GitLab integrated with GitLab CI.
