Caution for the embedded H2 database

In default, GitBucket works with H2 database in embed mode. However we recommend to use MySQL or PostgreSQL if you want to use GitBucket in important use because H2 has possibility of breaking data when JVM which is working under GitBucket is crashed. So if your GitBucket is working with the embedded H2 database, you will find a caution at the administration console.

Caution for database configuration

In addition, this release contains some improvements and bug fix. See all closed issues in this release to know details.

Enjoy GitBucket!
