Assembla is no longer free

and it sucks! I got quite a few emails regarding my previous posts about how great Assembla was. Assembla is no longer hosting private projects for free. I you want free, it must be open source, and that’s not what I need so I started quite a quest for a new svn hosting site.

Obviously, I’m not the only one flying away from Assembla. Take a look at this post at stackovwerflow.com. None of the suggested sites were good to me, cause they offered 1 free private project (and I need more). Devjavu.com sounds good but they restricted their free private hosting to invitation-only (they say is temporary), so created an account at xp-dev.com, it is just svn hosting, they don’t wiki or other services and the site look & feel is pretty crappy, but it does what I need it to do, and for free.

But wait! as I was writing this post and going over the stackoverflow thread I discovered Origo, and I stuck with it. It’s 100% free for private projects, has issue tracking, wiki, and more.

Give it a try!

Hi Seb,

XP-Dev.com is due for a new release real soon which will ramp up the number of features that we provide, including a full multi user project tracker, Subversion upload/downloads and wikis.

Do keep an eye out for it, and I'll be blogging about it as well.
