GitHub Announces that Free Accounts Now Can Create Private Repositories, Bash-5.0 Released, iPhone Apps Linked to Golduck Malware, Godot Game Engine Reaches 3.1 Beta, NSA to Open-Source Its GHIDRA Reverse-Engineering Tool
News briefs for January 8, 2019.


GitHub's CEO Nat Friedman yesterday announced that free accounts now can create private repositories (previously only paid accounts could have private repositories). Ars Technica reports that "Now every GitHub account can create an unlimited number of private repositories. These are still restricted—only three people can collaborate on these repositories—but a great many of those projects that once had no option but to be opened up might now be marked as private." The Ars Technica article also expresses concern that one possibility with this change is that "programs that would previously have been published as open source will now be closed up forever".

Haven't seen any article on this, put this in News as Mybroadband is a tech site and I think this is a quite nice development in regards to those of us who would rather not publicly publish their code while still having an external repo.
