*** This is a major version upgrade of GitLab. As a result, the underlying tools, frameworks, and programming languages that GitLab is built upon have also been updated, most notably the Ruby Rails version. This should only affect functionality in the GitLab user interface. The GitLab API version has not been updated - remains at v4.
We recommend that you test your processes (in the development system, at this link: http://gitlab-dev.dipr.partners.org - to log in, just use your Partners ID and Password). The Development server is currently at version 11.7.10. No projects or data have been copied over from the production server. You can create new projects in the development environment and conduct tests as necessary. Projects created in the development environment may be removed without notice (as we conduct future GitLab version testing). Please complete any necessary testing before the upgrade on Monday, February 25th at 7 AM.
