This week we saw the release of WordPress 4.0 RC1, you can download it now or check out Smashing Magazine's guide to the new features.

One interesting post which caught my eye was this write up of the history of the theme company Press75, its an interesting look into one of the more successful theme shops, it's success and ultimately its sale to new owners, complete with honest views and financial numbers. I love posts like this which give an insight that most people wouldn't be brave enough to post.

Enjoy the news and have a great weekend!
