State of the Word 2016

Some highlights-of-highlights, based on Brian Krogsgard’s post:

  • BuddyPress and bbPress will get new support and engagement over the next year.
  • WordPress 4.6 was available in 50 languages the day it was released.
  • the REST API [endpoints] get included in WordPress 4.7.
  • WordPress.com is now fully on PHP7. WordPress.org will now recommend PHP7 by default.
  • There is some concern about design. “If WordPress doesn’t make changes to the interface and otherwise, [Matt Mullenweg would] expect WordPress marketshare to begin to decline by 2018.” and “In the coming releases, he, ‘wants to see design leading the way.'”
