There's a lot of internet drama about the new pricing right now, but I'm interested in whether the release model is expected to change since that will affect how plugins are developed. Is the plan to move to a rolling update model, like browsers have, or maintain a major version scheme? What will the implications be for plugin development and API versioning?
Similarly, for paid plugins are there any plans to allow third party plugins to piggyback on the licensing scheme? If development switches to a rolling update model that will pretty much force all plugins to use a subscription model as well since the underlying platform will be continuously upgraded. For locked down environments without outbound HTTP access it will be a pain to have to write a license server, and a pain for clients to have to install and maintain two.
