GitLab 12.5 was released this week with EKS cluster creation and an environments dashboard. According to the company, EKS cluster is crucial in today’s multi-cloud world. 

GitLab’s new environments dashboard provides a single point of access to the status of environments in all groups and projects. 

In addition, Crossplane has been integrated and deployable as a GitLab Managed App, removing the friction and effort of provisioning and managing cloud service dependencies by allowing admins to declaratively provision and securely consume managed services from a cloud of their choice, the company explained.

Other features of the release include Sourcegraph integration and new security improvements.
