I’m excited to announce that with today’s release of Jira Studio, the agile planning tool GreenHopper is now included free of charge for all Studio customers. GreenHopper is a Jira plug-in that adds a broad collection of agile project management capabilities to Jira, and extends Jira as a powerful platform for agile development teams. GreenHopper simplifies the planning and organisation of tasks, workflows and reporting for agile teams. With our announcement today of Atlassian’s GreenHopper acquisition, we are now able to include these agile planning tools free of charge to all Studio customers. Learn more about GreenHopper at our new GreenHopper overview site.

Price Change – also effective today is a major price change for Studio. Developers, formerly priced at $50, have now been dropped to $25, meaning that for only $25 a month, a user has full access to Jira, Confluence, SVN, Fisheye, Crucible, and now GreenHopper. Is there a better value to be found? We don’t think so, and with risk-free 30-day evaluations now available, there’s no better time to try Studio out.
