The GitLab team has announced the release of GitLab 15.0. This gives users access to scan containers at all levels, internal notes, best links to external organizations and contacts, disruptive changesand more.
This release also includes improvements aimed at speeding up users’ workflows in the WYSIWYG Markdown editor for their wiki.
According to the company, there will no longer be monochrome code blocks without stylization. Users will be able to choose from more than 100 languages in the drop-down list above the code block, so that CSS, YAML and Python code are separated from each other with clear syntax highlighting.
Editing links and images in the WYSIWYG editor has also become easier with the new pop-up menu that appears when a user selects a link or attached image.
In addition, advanced search is now compatible with the Elasticsearch open source fork, OpenSearchallowing customers to take full advantage of OpenSearch for advanced search.
GitLab 15.0 also gives the group the ability to manage multiple sets of simultaneous iterations with iteration cadences. This works so that each team can control the start date and duration of each iteration in its iteration cadence.
Another key feature is internal notes, which allow teams to edit specific discussions that contain internal or customer data that should only be visible to certain users, while keeping basic information about the issue public.
Internal notes in issues or epics can only be seen by the author of the issue, a human rights activist, and members of the group or project who have at least the role of reporter.
This release also offers users the ability to use nested CI / CD variables with environment in the pipeline configuration. Users can stack variables inside other variables and expand them as they expect, increasing the flexibility of the dynamic environment.
