The time has come for another major release! We are proud to present Gitea 1.8.0 to the world. This release contains two new security fixes which cannot be backported to the 1.7.0 branch, so it is recommended to update to this version. In this release, we merged 245 pull requests – This is more than 1.7.0 (157) and 1.6.0 (178).
You can download one of our pre-built binaries from our downloads page - make sure to select the correct platform! For further details on how to install, follow our installation guide. Unfortunately there is a known issue with our prebuilt images on armv7, see #6700.
We’d like to thank all of our backers on Open Collective, who are helping us deliver a better piece of software.
With that out of the way, here’s what’s new in Gitea version 1.8.0:
