Today we have upgraded GitLab from 6.1 to 6.3. The maintenance starts from 01:30 AM and lasts 14 minutes.
After this upgrade, public projects can be accessed without login. So now you are free to paste URLs in public projects anywhere on the web.
For example, you can access USTC Blog deploy script without login: https://gitlab.lug.ustc.edu.cn/ustc-blog/ustc-blog/blob/master/admin-tools/deploy.sh
Furthermore, you can use URL to “raw” files in automated scripts. For example
/bin/bash <(curl https://gitlab.lug.ustc.edu.cn/ustc-blog/ustc-blog/raw/master/admin-tools/deploy.sh) --clean
GitLab 6.3 also includes several security fixes and a redesigned UI. Enjoy!
