WordPress 4.1 Release Candidate is now available for download which includes the new default theme Twenty Fifteen, you can read about what else is new with it here. Or download it here. I love this new default theme, a huge step back in the right direction ( I thought Twenty Fourteen was awful ). A nice clean design, optimised nicely for mobile devices and good typography - this is how it should be done.

There was an interesting discussion on the WPTavern comments of this post, where Jeff asks what it would take for WordPress to lose it's dominance. I found point 5 rather funny "A huge scandal takes place involving Automattic, the WordPress Foundation and those close to the project." I just cant see WordPress being taken over for many years to come - it's too far ahead at this point, sort of like the Facebook of CMS's. Too many large companies rely on it to see it fail and I just don't see anything at the momement that could even come close. I did a post recently about this, WordPress competitors, but none came close to what we have with WordPress. I think we're all safe for a bit!
