Last week Gerrit Code Review version 2.8 GA was released. It is a major release and devs have spent 8 months and two Hackathons in London and Boulder to release it. The highlights are:
- Secondary index support
- New change screen
- New plugin API
While each of this features can fill out the whole release for itself, all three combined explain why Gerrit users, developers and early adopters are so excited about the availability of Gerrit 2.8 GA.
