In this episode, John James Jacoby and I spend the first half of the show discussing WP Engine’s acquisition of StudioPress. We share reactions from social media, debate on whether it’s a good or bad thing for the WordPress ecosystem, and webhosts being at the top of the food chain.
We also talk about a recent security vulnerability that was publicly disclosed, ProsPress acquires AutomateWoo, and the release of Tide beta 1. Also of note, we identified an issue that causes John’s audio to turn into static. His audio should be fixed in the next episode.
