WP RSS Aggregator, the RSS feed importer popular we launched way back in 2012, has broken the 500,000 download mark just a few days ago.
When I first released this plugin on the WordPress.org repository I could never have imagined that in just a few years it would have reached this important milestone and enabled me to run a product business based on its premium extensions.
WordCamp Europe has been sold out for some time, however there are still tickets being donated or sold, mostly from those who unfortunately cannot make it. A few people who are looking for a ticket have contacted me so I am publishing this post to help them out. If you or anyone you know need a ticket please post in the comments section below. Likewise, those who have extra tickets can jump in and contact those looking for a ticket.
Good luck and see you in Vienna!

This will no doubt affect GPL plugin resellers as many do have woo in their domain name. The first known site to bow to the pressure is WooGPL. The owner of that site, Billy Ablett, has in fact announced the closure of WooGPL and its reopening as GPLKit.

To the rest, don’t despair, we had to pass over many excellent applicants simply because we had so many to choose from. We will issue another call in the future so please apply again at that time.
