GitHub's Free Users Will Now Be Able to Make Private Repositories

GitHub makes private repositories available for free

Microsoft obviously needed to add some restrictions to make paid GitHub accounts more attractive, but making private repositories free will be a positive change for small developers wanting to collaborate on private projects.

This announcement comes courtesy of TheNextWeb.com, which admits it broke Microsoft's embargo on the news a day early.

Cyntoia Brown will reportedly be required to perform 50 hours of community service and also participate in counseling sessions. Celebrity support from entertainers like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian helped ignite a viral campaign to get Brown out of prison.

Fortunately, that's no longer the case, as GitHub today announced it was giving users of its free plan access to unlimited private repositories. These projects are typically open-source not because their authors have any particular desire to share them with the world but because GitHub gave them no choice: free GitHub accounts could only create public repositories. While that cost does add up over the year, it isn't too challenging to put together $7 a month if you have a job.

For those using GitHub in enterprise environments, the service's Business Cloud and Enterprise services are now unified in one offering.

Humble Store Adding Individual Downloads And DLC For Nintendo Systems
Actually, since the eShop is now in the middle of a New Year's sale , some games are actually more expensive on Humble. If you live in the United States and have a Nintendo Switch or 3DS, you now have one more option for buying games.

With GitHub Free, developers can now host as many private coding projects they want for free. This is a reasonable compromise that ensures Microsoft can see profit from GitHub for commercial projects while extending a great benefit to those who could use the help the most.

In a further sign of potential parent company synergy, GitHub said devs can now create pull requests directly from GitHub Pull Requests, an extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code, the Windows maker's Electron-based cross-platform code editor.

NHS launches 'effective' plan to tackle alcohol abuse
Better support will also be offered to fathers or partners of women accessing specialist perinatal mental health services. With additional funding announced, the NHS is making plans to make it fit for future generations.

Overall these changes should help GitHub continue to develop a healthy ecosystem of users. Unlimited private repositories were already available for free via GitHub's Education program to students and teachers, by the way.
