GitLab is open source software to collaborate on code. Today GitLab announce the release of a new version of GitLab Community Edition (CE) and GitLab Enterprise Edition (EE), with new features, usability and performance improvements, and bug fixes. The biggest new feature in Community Edition is new and improved labels. In addition to the updates from Community Edition, GitLab Enterprise Edition allows administrator to send emails to users through the admin interface.
Other changes include the ability to star a project, an explore page for public projects and groups, an API for labels, improvements for diffs and various bug fixes.
Published Opensource Redmine GitLab Hook (MIT License)
This Redmine plugin allows you to update your local Git repositories in Redmine when changes have been pushed to GitLab.
Redmine redmine.org has supported Git repositories for a long time, allowing you to browse your code and view your changesets directly in Redmine. For this purpose, Redmine relies on local clones of the Git repositories.
If your shared repository is on a remote machine – for example on GitLab – this unfortunately means a bit of legwork to keep the local, Redmine-accessible repository up-to-date. The common approach is to set up a cronjob that pulls in any changes with regular intervals and updates Redmine with them.
That approach works perfectly fine, but is a bit heavy-handed and cumbersome. The Redmine GitLab Hook plugin allows GitLab to notify your Redmine installation when changes have been pushed to a repository, triggering an update of your local repository and Redmine data only when it is actually necessary.
