Bitbucket Joins Atlassian

Big news today from – we’ve joined Atlassian.

It’s been an exciting two years for Bitbucket, but it’s just beginning. The Bitbucket team is pumped to join the Atlassian guys, and together we’re going to build the absolutely best hosted code collaboration system atop Mercurial. We’re working hard to make the service even better, and now we’ve brought in reinforcements!

Free code-hosting

As part of the big announcement, we’re launching all-new pricing tiers. All accounts now have unlimited private and public repositories with unlimited storage. You can now get a 5-user private code repository account for free… forever. And, for the next week, we are offering a free 12-month subscription to the 10-user tier.

Account changes

Bitbucket customers will be receiving emails from us shortly with details about their new accounts. Atlassian will be managing subscriptions, so as of today, we have canceled everyone’s PayPal subscription. Customers with less than five users will automatically be rolled into the new 5-user free pricing tier, but if you have more than 5-users, you’re going to want to update your payment information for the new subscription To manage your new account or upgrade, login to Bitbucket.
