Release Highlights

  • New change workflows

Important Notes

Schema Changes

This release contains schema changes. To upgrade:

  java -jar gerrit.war init -d site_path

New Features

New Workflows

Private Changes

Changes can be marked as private, meaning they are only visible to the owner, reviewers, and users with the “View Private Changes” permission.

Ignore and Mute Changes

Changes can be ignored or muted to reduce email notifications and keep dashboards cleaner.


Changes can be switched between “work in progress” and “ready to review”.


  • Instances of IdString used to return true when equals was given a String instance equal to the IdString's URL-encoded value. This violates symmetry, so this behavior was removed: IdStrings now never compare equal to Strings.
