First update for xScape Theme Framework in 2012 brings many new features (shortcodes, new web fonts, new options for widgets and more), numerous improvements and several bugs fixed. As previously announced, brand new theme Xposed will be released tomorrow.

New beta version for GD Products Center is here, fixing several bugs (some rendering issues and saving some of the properties) and adding more new features: single latest/random product widget, simple and advanced paging for archives and some more plugin core changes.
Here is another minor revision for GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools Pro with number of fixes for overriding default post types and taxonomies. Also, plugin now comes with tools that can be used to reset plugin settings and data, cached registration and WordPress rewrite rules.
This is first basic performance testing for WordPress plugins in 2012, and it will include 30 plugins. They will be tested on how much resources they use to load, and not to tell you if the plugin is good or not. Plugins features and plugin code quality is not the reviewed here.
It is impossible to give detailed info about development that should span a whole year, but some plans are already made and it might be interesting to list them now that new 2012 has started. When this year ends, we will see how much of these plans have been completed.
It is a last day of 2011, and I will try to summarize the last 365 days in the life of Dev4Press. But first, I would like to thank to all my faithful users that supported me and my projects over the years and I do my best to improve all my plugins and themes in the coming 2012.
