GitLab 15 Improves WYSIWYG

GitLab, the web-based repository manager for Git, has grown into a DevOps platform designed to combine the ability to develop, secure, and operate software in a single application. Highlights of its new version include WYSIWYG for wikis and container scanning in all tiers.



A number of improvements have been made to speed up workflows in the WYSIWYG Markdown editor for wikis. This starts with the ability to choose from over 100 languages when working with codeblocks, so code in different languages is displayed distinctly with the correct syntax highlighting. The code blocks will inherit your preferred syntax highlighting theme, and can be copied to the clipboard for use in your code editor.

The handling of links and media has also been improved. In earlier releases, you had to select from the editing toolbar to change a selected link or image on your wiki page, with some edits requiring you to delete the link or image then create it again. You can now edit links and images via a new popover menu that appears when you select a link or attached image. This has options for editing a link’s destination URL or description and copying the link or image to your clipboard as well as removing the link or image.

The next enhancement is that Advanced Search is now compatible with OpenSearch, the open source Elasticsearch fork. Until now, GitLab's Advanced Search wasn't compatible with OpenSearch, meaning that developers who had AWS-managed services had to use older versions of Elasticsearch.

Internal notes are a new feature in this release, meaning that even where issues and epics are public, discussions about them can be kept internal.

GitLab 15 is available now.
