Theme shop acquisitions, improving your workflow, and the new WordPress editor is released as a beta plugin.
No new themes this week but there have been a couple of interesting acquisitions.
First up, Imagely (creator of many fine Genesis photography themes) have announced they acquired TeslaThemes, as covered on the WP Tavern website.

Shortly after that announcement, Rebecca Gill of Web Savvy Marketing also revealed that she’d sold the themes part of her business to 9seeds.

Not Genesis specific, but such a big announcement I have to include it.
At WordCamp Europe yesterday Matt Mullenwegg revealed that the new WordPress editor (called Gutenberg) is now available as a beta plugin.
Definitely one to check out (though not recommended on a live site).
