GitLab’s artificial intelligence assistant GitLab Duo Chat is now generally available as part of the GitLab 16.11 release. It can answer questions that are related to specific issues, code, bugs, CI/CD configurations, or the GitLab platform itself, as well as refactor existing code and generate tests.

“Whether you’re a developer or you’re managing the entire team, GitLab Duo Chat can empower you to take advantage of AI exactly where you need it throughout the software development lifecycle — all while helping you maintain code quality and security guardrails,” the company wrote in post.

Organizations can control which data the AI gets read access to at the project, subgroup and group level. GitLab also said that customer data is not used to train the AI models.

Other new features in GitLab 16.11 include:

  • Policy scoping, which allows compliance teams to assign policy enforcement to a specific group of projects;
  • Product analytics, including key usage and user adoption data;
  • Ability to disable personal access tokens by enterprise users;
  • Autocomplete when inserting links to wikipedia pages;
  • Sidebar containing project information;

In total, over 40 new features have been added to GitLab 16.11. It is available in GitLab and in IDEs such as VS Code and the JetBrainsIDE.
