Automattic officially took ownership of Tumblr last week, so both communities should start looking for some changes soon. πŸ‘€

Two other investments and acquisitions in the open-source space might have caught your eye:

  • Gatsby has raised a $15M Series A funding round led by CRV “to drive the reinvention of website development.”
  • Vista Equity Partners has purchased Acquia (the commercial arm for the open-source Drupal project) “in a deal valued at $1 billion.” Dries Buytaert notes on his blog that “our deep commitment to Drupal, Mautic and Open Source will be unchanged” and “will in fact increase.”
