Just announced on Facebook: WordPress 4.7 at 10 mio. downloads.
In this post Helen Hou-Sandi suggests working on starter content to the new Twenty Seventeen theme. UX should be a major concern in all themes:
“While theme review guidelines need to be finalized and documented, it is anticipated that themes being submitted to WordPress.org will be expected to select from core-provided content to promote consistency and to help keep the theme review process from becoming lengthier, with exceptions being made on a case by case basis. Themes being distributed outside of WordPress.org are not subject to the same review process; however, it is recommended that consistent user experiences be the primary consideration in how starter content is chosen and implemented.” (HHS op.cit.)
Nick Halsey made a usability test on Twenty Seventeen. See the results here. The method seems to be observation of usage and notes during the test. Four users tested the new theme. According to the web guru Nielsen you could find around 90% of the usability errors in this way.
