For submission to WP.org directory to coordinate with 4.9 release, let's bump the version numbers for themes and update the changelogs. Most default themes received some work this release.

Tickets for this in the past:

4.5: #36354
4.6: #37426
4.7: #38858
4.8: #40905

Anyone is welcome to help with this, but I'll assign myself as I usually test the themes prior to release and see this through. Any and all help is welcome! :)
