Free or not?

Is SourceTree really free?

In the EULA it states

(i) For evaluation, using the software for up to 30 days free of charge, or
(ii) After purchasing a single license, using the software on a single computer, OR
using the software on multiple computers so long as it is the same person using it

30 days of evaluation isn't free to me, so what is correct?

This looks like some legacy wording. It used to cost > $0.

I started an evaluation of SourceTree exactly 30 days before Atlassian announced that they'd purchased it. So on the day I was due to purchase it, Atlassian reduced the license cost to $0. Nice. That's free as in "free beer" in my mind.

I think the existing licensing mechanism remains though: Get a license. Install it. Use the product.

This is the usual punishment for reading EULAs. You always end up wondering. AFAIK is free.

Can you let us know where you found this?

We'll get this updated to correctly reflect that SourceTree is free.

Great :-)

I downloaded the SourceTreeSetup_0.9.4.exe from (redirected here from the Atlassian site), started the installation and it asked me to check box that I had read and accepted the EULA that was part of the installation in file:///C:/Program%20Files%20%28x86%29/Atlassian/SourceTree/extras/licenses/eula.html
