I can hardly believe the tweet I just received from Roy Rubin saying he was stepping down as COO of Magento:
For many of us Roy is the heart-and-sole of Magento and see him leave, is well, disappointing. I wonder how the community will react to his departure. For me it raises questions and I now more than ever want to know when Magento 2.0 will be released. Spending over 4 years working on Magento 2.0 is starting to drag and I wonder if it has anything to do with Roy's departure as COO.
I'll report back after my trip to Magento Imagine this year.
