WooThemes has been acquired by Automattic!
There’s not too much I want to say about this apart from: exciting! The focus is going to be more on WooCommerce than the themes side, at first at least.
I hope WooCommerce will be in WordPress.com sooner rather than later. That would be sweet! And since the whole network is served securely maybe we could even have Stripe as a default offering… That’s just my hopes and wishes, nothing official on that front yet.
