Bitbucket retires Mercurial SCM support.
After much consideration, we've decided to remove Mercurial support from Bitbucket Cloud and the API. Mercurial features and repositories will be officially removed from Bitbucket and its API on June 1, 2020. What used to be a very fragmented version control software market has rapidly matured. Mercurial usage on Bitbucket is steadily declining, and the percentage of new Bitbucket users choosing Mercurial has fallen to less than 1%. At the same time, Git has become the standard. According to a Stack Overflow Developer Survey, almost 90% of developers use Git, while Mercurial is the least popular version control system with only about 3% developer adoption.
Mercurial was my first VCS.
and Bitbucket was premium with free private hg repos back in 2009.
I learnt hg first, because I didn't like what I saw in git.
Why is everything a popularity contest ...
