Looks like people now pay for Trello, meaning 'ripper' fourth quarter at Atlassian

Business Class a bit too costly but Free a little limited? Here comes Standard

Atlassian has fiddled with its Trello pricing tiers and added a new one for customers who found the leap from Free to Business Class a jump too far.

Disappointingly called "Standard", the new tier is aimed at small teams and costs $5 per user per month (if you pay for a year up front) or $6 per user per month on a monthly basis.

"Standard" slots nicely between the freebie offering and "Business Class." The latter will henceforth be known as "Premium." The price, at $10 per user per month for a 12-month commitment, remains unchanged.

Users signing up for the new tier will receive unlimited boards in Trello as well as unlimited storage (although there is a 250MB file limit). 1,000 Butler automation command runs per month per Workspace are also permitted along with advanced checklists and custom fields.

That 1,000 limit has been removed in Premium, which is where all Atlassian's shiny new views (introduced earlier this year) can be found.

Kanban fans without such deep pockets can still opt for the Free tier, which now features unlimited Power-Ups as well as custom background and stickers. Limits remain, however – there are only 10 boards per workspace and files in the "unlimited storage" are limited to 10MB.

The naming of the tiers matches those of Atlassian's venerable issue tracker, Jira, which also lays claim to Free, Standard, and Premium (although priced from $0, $7 and $14 per user per month respectively).

The addition of the paid-for tier comes in wake of Atlassian's latest set of quarterly results. Co-founder and co-CEO Mike Cannon-Brookes described Q4 as "a ripper of a quarter" as the company added another 23,311 customers and $559.5m in revenues (up 30 per cent from the same period last year). Operating losses widened to $7.5m from $3.3m in Q4 FY2020.

Of those new customers, 6,520 were single-user Trello accounts. ®

    In brief Thieves operating for the North Korean government made off with almost $400m in digicash last year in a concerted attack to steal and launder as much currency as they could.

    A report from blockchain biz Chainalysis found that attackers were going after investment houses and currency exchanges in a bid to purloin funds and send them back to the Glorious Leader's coffers. They then use mixing software to make masses of micropayments to new wallets, before consolidating them all again into a new account and moving the funds.

    Bitcoin used to be a top target but Ether is now the most stolen currency, say the researchers, accounting for 58 per cent of the funds filched. Bitcoin accounted for just 20 per cent, a fall of more than 50 per cent since 2019 - although part of the reason might be that they are now so valuable people are taking more care with them.

  • Tesla Full Self-Driving videos prompt California's DMV to rethink policy on accidents

    Plus: AI systems can identify different chess players by their moves and more

    In brief California’s Department of Motor Vehicles said it’s “revisiting” its opinion of whether Tesla’s so-called Full Self-Driving feature needs more oversight after a series of videos demonstrate how the technology can be dangerous.

    “Recent software updates, videos showing dangerous use of that technology, open investigations by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the opinions of other experts in this space,” have made the DMV think twice about Tesla, according to a letter sent to California’s Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach), chair of the Senate’s transportation committee, and first reported by the LA Times.

    Tesla isn’t required to report the number of crashes to California’s DMV unlike other self-driving car companies like Waymo or Cruise because it operates at lower levels of autonomy and requires human supervision. But that may change after videos like drivers having to take over to avoid accidentally swerving into pedestrians crossing the road or failing to detect a truck in the middle of the road continue circulating.

  • Alien life on Super-Earth can survive longer than us due to long-lasting protection from cosmic rays

    Laser experiments show their magnetic fields shielding their surfaces from radiation last longer

    Life on Super-Earths may have more time to develop and evolve, thanks to their long-lasting magnetic fields protecting them against harmful cosmic rays, according to new research published in Science.

    Space is a hazardous environment. Streams of charged particles traveling at very close to the speed of light, ejected from stars and distant galaxies, bombard planets. The intense radiation can strip atmospheres and cause oceans on planetary surfaces to dry up over time, leaving them arid and incapable of supporting habitable life. Cosmic rays, however, are deflected away from Earth, however, since it’s shielded by its magnetic field.

    Now, a team of researchers led by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) believe that Super-Earths - planets that are more massive than Earth but less than Neptune - may have magnetic fields too. Their defensive bubbles, in fact, are estimated to stay intact for longer than the one around Earth, meaning life on their surfaces will have more time to develop and survive.
