= Release notes for Gerrit 2.0.8
Gerrit 2.0.8 is now available in the usual location:
*WARNING: This version contains a schema change.*
Schema upgrade:
java -jar gerrit.war --cat sql/upgrade006_007.sql | psql reviewdb
This version has some major bug fixes for JGit. I strongly encourage people to upgrade, we had a number of JGit bugs identified last week, all of them should be fixed in this release.
