### GITLAB 4.1 Released

Hi everyone!

Today we released GitLab v4.1.0. 

We improved performance, fixed some bugs, added public repos and more
 
<!-- more -->

### Good news 

We have some very good news to share. From today onwards, __[Dmitriy Zaporozhets](https://github.com/randx) will work on GitLab development full time!__ 

In the last year, GitLab has grown from a small project to a grown-up solution.
Right now, more than 10.000 organizations have upgraded to GitLab 4.0! [link](http://rubygems.org/gems/gitlab_meta)

Dmitriy wants to give GitLab his full attention and continue giving the community great features each month. 
To do this, we will need your help. If you like GitLab and want to help with the development, please make a donation. [Donation page](http://gitlab.org/donate/)

Sidekiq uses threads instead of forks so it is much more efficient with memory compared to Resque.

### Discussions:

We improved comments system, especially for merge requests. You see it shows a code related to comments
