In October we committed to contributing 2.5 full-time, dedicated support people to the WordPress Support Forums.
This was in response to WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg’s proposal that companies directly involved in WordPress should give back Five for the Future.
So we put a call out for friendly new people to join our support team, but unlike our regular crew these new people would hang out in the WordPress.org Support Forums all day, 40 hours minimum per week, helping folks out with anything and everything.
After initially trialling 12 people over a few weeks of intense training, we’re pleased to announce our WordPress Support Forums team.
While WordPress 4.0 was “just another release” as far as semantic versioning goes, many in the community were disappointed. After all, “4.0” seemed like such a nice, round number and thinking back to the huge number of features in WordPress 3.0, people had high hopes. In a sense, the public has been trained to hear a x.0 release as being a step forward and WordPress 4.0 didn’t deliver.
So with WordPress 4.1 expected to drop sometime next week, what can we expect?
