A lot has happened in the past week. Drupal Feature Freeze was extended, DrupalCon Portland co-locates with Symfony Live, and Acquia raises 30 million in funding.

Drupal 8 Feature Freeze Extended

As soon as the newsletter went out last week Dries made this announcement. I think it’s a good call.

DrupalCon Portland Will Co-Locate with Symfony Live and WebVisions

DrupalCon Portland is joining forces with Symfony Live and WebVisions. No, there aren’t combining the three cons but special rates will be available to attend all three conferences. This seems like a great opportunity for exposing Drupal to a wider PHP developer audience

Acquia Raises $30 Million Series E

In this post Dries talks about the new funding from Investor Growth Capital, Goldman Sachs, Accolade Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners, Sigma Partners and Tenaya Capital. He doesn’t get into to much detail other than they will be doing more of what they are doing now. For those who are tracking this, they have now raised $68.5 million in total funding. Not too shabby.
