Bitbucket upgrade goes toe to toe with GitHub

Atlassian takes on the hosting leader with an upgrade to its Git code management platform for easier use among distributed teams

Giving GitHub a run for its money, Atlassian is upgrading its Bitbucket project hosting platform with improvements covering distributed teams, large files, and repository organization.

Supporting both the Git and Mercurial revision control systems, Bitbucket offers code collaboration and Git that "massively scales," according to Atlassian. The company is adding Smart Mirroring, Git LFS (Large File System), and a Projects capability, for organizing multiple repositories, to Bitbucket.
