Now Offering SSL For Everybody

May 17th, 2012

Security is one of our main priorities at unfuddle. One of the ways we have always helped our customers on certain paid plans is by allowing them to access their accounts via SSL. We are proud to announce that SSL is now available for all accounts, regardless of plan. This means all Private and Micro level accounts now have SSL enabled.

There is no need to upgrade or modify your existing account in order to use SSL. However, if you wish to prevent your team from accidentally accessing your Subversion repositories without SSL, simply check the "Force SVN SSL" box in your account settings.

All new accounts start with a 30-day FREE trial. No credit card required.

We are also pleased to announce that we are offering a completely free 30-day trial for all new accounts. Now you can try before you buy.

Did you want to try Unfuddle but didn't want to pay? Now is your chance. We do not require any billing information for the first 30 days so you can get up and running in almost no time at all. Simply pick a plan and go! For existing customers, if you have been using the Private plan wondering what the other plans have to offer, upgrade your account now to begin your free trial.

We have a new website

You may have noticed, we just launched a redesign of our website, blog, and community forums. You probably recall that the old one was looking, well, old! Now it is cleaned up, simplified, and better reflecting of who we are and what we believe as a company. Of course, this is just the start of much more to come in the future.

  1. LaughingJohn:

    Website looks much cleaner, well done! Are you extending it to our project sites as well? Also can you share any of your up and coming plans?

  2. LaughingJohn:

    Also, please, please get rid of the Captchas in the forum, it makes them really hard work (and ideally from the comments in the blog)....

  3. David Croswell:

    Thanks for your encouragement. We think it looks better too!

    You will be glad to know that the website is only one new project that we have been working on over the past months. We have also been working on a number of brand new products that we are getting ready to share with our customers. The website redesign is just paving the way.

    Regarding CAPTCHAs, we agree with you that they are rather annoying. However, as imposing as they are, they are EXTREMELY effective at stopping spam posts. Rather than manually vetting comments or requiring user logins, we would prefer to just keep the CAPTCHAs.

  4. David Havard:

    Do any of these new products cover nested tickets with rollup timing or scrum tools? We have been looking at moving from unfuddle for these reasons. We love everything else but these are becoming a real sticking point as our company grows.

  5. Mariusz:

    Nice work. :)

  6. Andrew:

    Would like to echo David above. We have been thinking of moving for similar reasons. Even having tickets in a scrum board would be a good start

  7. LaughingJohn:

    I'd just like to comment on David Harvard and Andrew's comments above. If you are considering more "agile" features please please don't push us all down that route. The reason I like Unfuddle is because it is simple and doesn't force me to use any particular methodology.

    I'm all David and Andrew being given the tools they require, but please make it optional and don't force us into a particular way of working. Simplicity and flexibility please!

    Thanks,
    LJ

    P.S I know I keep going on about it, but I don't have a problem with the idea of Captchas what I do have a problem with is the fact they are unreadable to humans half the time and it takes several attempts to publish something and the temptation is to just give up!

  8. chaporgin:

    Nice going! One day, please add better wiki markup.

  9. Christopher:

    As you're now adding services to micro and private accounts, I'd like to suggest an increase in the storage allowances across the board. Micro's 512 MB for 9$ a month doesn't seem like much of a deal when so many data storage sites offer 2 GB or more for free. I'm mostly a one-man shop and it looks like I'm about to be forced to upgrade to the "Compact" plan just because of storage space.

    $9 to $24 is a significant jump! And storage seems like it should be a cheap commodity, not something that more than doubles my costs. I don't have any other complaints, love using Unfuddle-- but this issue alone is becoming a potential thorn for me.

    Thanks,
    C

  10. Mark Carranza:

    SSL for everybody!

    I'm the opposite of @Christopher above. I'm an individual developer working with sensitive clients needing SSL. But my Unfuddle storage is 40MB of 2GB available, I was willing to pay upward to the $24/month plan just for the SSL.
    I can now downgrade, Compact $288/year -> Micro $108/year, yay!

    I'd love to be able to pay yearly, say: Micro: $100/year, Compact $250/year.

    As a feast/famine individual developer there were months when the CCard was maxed and I had to think about the unfuddle bill. There's math involved adjusting account lengths when a account paid yearly would upgrade or downgrade: we can do math. I think this would help a number of Accounts Payable departments who like less frequent billing, and get you cash up front.

    re: agile/scrum

    I've found that I can use the Unfuddle ticket system more effectively for agile for getting rid of everything I can.

    1) no project components or ticket severities (simpler).

    2) custom field 1: [Ticket] "Type", list: {Defect, Enhancement, Task, Story}

    3) custom field 2: "Tracking", list: {Current, Backlog, Icebox}

    4) remove/rewrite most ticket reports to filter for simple views using list items of 2) 3)

    I'd love to be able to have a multiple sort values in reporting. I.e.,
    filter: Tracking is "Current",
    sort: "Assigned To" DESC + "Priority" DESC

    I think the ticket system is flexible enough, but reporting needs work and is missing simple generally available features.
