The year is coming to an end and 2014 has been an exciting and uplifting year. When it comes to WordPress, we had 3 major releases honored to the jazz musicians Jimmy Smith (3.9), Benny Goodman (4.0) and Dinah Washington (4.1).
WordPress continues to grow by the number of users and it will be exciting to see if WordPress is able to continue to keep growing in the same pace!
There has also been a fantastic year when it comes to WordPress themes, and I mean primarily free themes. So many awesome themes have been released both in the official WordPress themes directory and on other theme designers web pages around the world. Amazing ..
Now when this year is approaching the end and we have an exciting new year to look forward to, I want to summarize and present the 50 best free WordPress themes from 2014 (my opinion), as I do every year.
