If you are a theme author looking to release your theme on the official directory, some themes are taking up to 2 months to get the initial review done. Sadly this was the case with out last theme release on there, there are some good comments and ideas in that post’s comments so check that out. If you have been put off uploading your first theme to the directory, I highly recommend you give it a try. Your first theme will likely take a little work to get approved but after you have been through the process you will have a better idea of what to look out for and you can use the feedback from your first review to improve your next one which will speed up the approval process. I remember out first theme there took quite a bit of back and forth but we can now get our themes approved quite quickly.

WordPress 4.4 is coming, check out this post which highlights the main changes coming so you can make sure your themes and plugins will compatible with it.

Finally, our Black Friday deals post is coming on Monday – This year is looking like the biggest so far, my emails this week have been overloaded with theme and plugin authors letting me know about their deals this year so if you are looking for a specific product, I would hold off till then as you can be sure of a good deal next week.

Here is the week in WordPress…
