GitLab has released version 9 of its Enterprise software. The open source tool for code and team management is adding features related to application monitoring and team oversight. For example, GitLab Enterprise 9 now has a subgroup feature that allows enterprise application development teams to subdivide into smaller units for more effective management. It also has a new Deploy Board to provide oversight of code deployments. In addition, it has a performance monitoring tool that leverages the open source Prometheus project.
GitLab faces stiff competition from GitHub and Bitbucket.
