Bitbucket now rocks Git

You’ve been asking for it, we’ve even joked about it ? now it’s here (for real): for the one year anniversary of Bitbucket joining Atlassian, we are happy to announce Git support.

All your source, all in one-place

Whether you are using Hg or Git, you can now keep all of your code in one place with your preferred DVCS format. If you have existing code you would like to migrate, you can easily import your Git, Mercurial or Subversion source code. We have added a new importer for GitHub to our existing site importers which include SourceForge, Google Code and Codeplex.

Unlimited private and public repositories

A big advantage for Bitbucket users is the ability to have unlimited private repositories for free. This means you can store every line of code you’ve ever written in one place without paying a cent.

Notable Changes

UI improvements have been happening gradually over the past six months:

  • Commit and file history browser
  • Source viewer
  • Issue tracker browser
  • Project downloads

Today’s release includes a new UI for the repository and user administration pages. A never ending goal is to make Bitbucket easier to navigate and use the operations you need fast.

Get your Git on

Pull requests, code commenting and key integrations with developer tools (JIRA, Pivotal, Lighthouse, Flowdock, HipChat, Twitter, Bamboo, Jenkins, Cloud9IDE and more) have made this a feature filled year. And now we add Git…

If you haven’t checked us out lately, Bitbucket has had a year of record growth ? more than tripling the number of accounts since the acquisition, adding over 350 improvements, bug fixes and new features.
