I personally feel this is an really interesting new plugin and service from WooCommerce which could offer a new general business model for the WordPress community.

2-WordPress lead core developer changes.

This month it was announced that Helen Hou-Sandí and Dion Hulse are now lead developers of t WordPress core project. Also Peter Westwood and Ryan Boren are stepping down from their lead developer roles are these major changes in the general direction that WordPress is going down during 2015?

3- WordPress and Taxonomy

We have always thought the way that the WordPress deals with taxonomies has always been unnecessary complicated and this is area that some additional work is needed in upcoming versions of WordPress in 2015.

4-Beaver Builder Plugin
