Unlimited private repositories now available to free GitHub users

Microsoft-owned GitHub is making a major change to its service. Yes, GitHub Free plan now includes unlimited private repositories.

Microsoft changed GitHub's stance regarding the creation of private repositories which were previously only available as an option to paying GitHub customers.

Asked whether Microsoft's deep pockets led to GitHub's revenue refusal, Kathy Simpson, senior director of product at GitHub, told The Register, "We are really excited about GitHub Free and being able to bring unlimited private repositories to the community".

He later went on to join the World Health Organization as an adviser, later rising in ranks at the World Bank in 2012. Mr Kim's announcement is coming more than three years ahead of the end of his tenure in 2022.

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.

This is a big deal because, in the past, GitHub's free offering only allowed you to make coding projects that could be viewed by anybody, anywhere. If you are an independent developer who has a ton of side projects and similar things, you can create private repositories for free without having to pay anything with the change. The new free tier for private repositories will be a boon to students and small developers alike.

Nat Friedman, CEO of GitHub, writes on Twitter that since its acquisition, GitHub has shipped over 125 improvements. Notably, free private repositories are a hallmark feature of GitHub rivals like Gitlab or Atlassian BitBucket. Additionally, GitHub is launching GitHub Enterprise, the new unified product for Enterprise Cloud and Enterprise Server. Yes, enterprises can now access both cloud and server solution at one per-seat price.
