We've been pretty quiet about what type of changes are going on under the hood in 5.7 until now. Let's just say, quite a bit:

New jQuery 1.x
JS & CSS precedence loading and minifying
New authentication types
New model view controller approach
Namespaced core (PSR-4)
Core & Override directory moving to the same level
Doctrine and steps towards total ORM


We're actually putting aside the time to redesign concrete5.org again in May. Here's our priority list and some out of date comps to get your mind running. Let us know if there's something we should be thinking about that we're missing.
