Development tool maker GitLab has released version 10 of its flagship open source platform. The update includes a number of features that support DevOps and Agile software development, including Docker integration, Auto DevOps, continuous integration and continuous deployment, chat, monitoring and issue boards. The Auto DevOps feature helps automate the software development lifecycle, including code pushes, testing and quality control.
“We started offering version control and issue tracking, and now we’re integrated for the whole software development life cycle,” GitLab CEO Sid Sijbrandij said. “It also contains a Docker container registry, so now your CI system is aware of the container system, and you don’t have to pass permissions around. You can go from an idea to getting it out there all within one application.”
