Doc’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you.

There’s been a lot of discussion around WordPress 5.0 recently including some folks who want to fork the WordPress project at 4.9. In last week’s video we talked with Morten Rand-Hendrickson about why he thinks a split would be a bad idea. This week we talked with Scott Bowler, the founder of “ClassicPress”, about why he decided to fork WordPress.

Like the chat with Morten, I think there’s a lot of interesting thoughts in this video and we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
