Atlassian has acquired Cenqua

Which is not surprising, given how many of my customers use both Jira for bugtracking and FishEye as a front-end browser for their version control. What's funny to me is that I suggested it to Scott Farquhar, the CEO of Atlassian last month at the Silicon Valley Atlassian User Group meeting, but I didn't pick up on why he looked a bit surprised by my suggestion that "hey, y'know, Atlassian should buy those FishEye guys!". Next time, I'll just ask if he wants to play poker.

No word on the terms of the deal, but from my perspective, it's great news. Best wishes to all involved.
