After starting this kind of post in 2013, it may develop into a habit.
I was definitely right with my optimism in the old post that 2014 is going to be exciting. One of the most exciting things in 2014 was the presentation of my first research paper  at the PESOS workshop that took place at ICSE 2014 in Hyderabad, India. It was a great experience and I'm still very thankful for this opportunity! Together with an accepted paper at the EnCASE workshop  and one at the CNSM conference  I had the chance to contribute to three fascinating publications in 2014.
To gain visibility in the research community it is usually a good start to provide a central place presenting your activities. Following this idea I released my personal website FlorianWessling.de to give an overview of my research activities as well as personal projects.
Talking about personal projects brings me to the next topic: My word wrap plugin and line number ruler patch is making it slowly into the official Eclipse code base. Currently Holger Voormann and Lars Vogel are pushing the code review forward by contributing and triggering the right people to take a closer look at the code. Thank you very much for your effort!
What is left to say? I'm looking forward to a great year 2015 with even more interesting projects, publications, ideas and experiences! The next big milestone I strive for is to finish my master thesis in the next few months and try to publish some of the insights as research paper.
