The most recent episode of the WPWeekly podcast is one giant interview with Matt Mullenweg covering a wide range of questions and topics such as…
What is the process one must go through in order to patch a bug, complete a ticket and get it into the core of WordPress?
Can you give use your stance on selling GPL compliant themes or plugins. Is WordPress.org going to support commercial GPL Themes in some other way or what’s up with commercial GPL products and WordPress.org?
Apparently improvements are being made to widgets, “Improved Widget user interface”. Can you describe those improvements and how they will affect WP Users and/or theme developers?
And that’s just scratching the surface. Check out the show notes over on WPTavern for the full list of questions that where brought up, and/or to listen to the episode. I’d highly suggest giving this episode a listen if you’re interested in the direction that WordPress is headed.
