What Can We Expect From WordPress 4.0?
Currently standing at version 3.8 (which happened on December 12, 2013), one really shouldn’t be thinking about anything other than WordPress 3.9 which is slated to come out on April 15, 2014. However, the real hype has always been around WordPress 4.0 ever since the makers announced that it’ll have modifications with the power to change the entire dynamics of traditional WordPress functionality. These tantalizing hints have kept us hooked and curious for over a year, and with the arrival of 2014, we are proud to announce that we are more impatient than ever.

WordPress 4.0 is slated to release on August 12, 2014, it is hard to say what we will be experiencing. We can just keep our fingers crossed and keep the hopes up.
Let us all expect for the best as Team WordPress hardly depresses anyone.
