Sorry, cannot post the external link yet.
But, announced yesterday, next WP version is expected to be launched in Spring and will be backwards compatible to WP8!!!!

Any more details on the next version? Will they finally bring back Bluetooth HID support and have the OS support Bluetooth 4.0 LE?

Will IE sync cookies and passwords with my desktops and tablets?

The Lumia Black firmware update brings support for Bluetooth 4.0 LE

In my opinion, the request confirmed (then unconfirmed) on UserVoice are all features of WP8.1

Are you sure on that? Isn't 'threshold' the codename for Windows 9?
However, who needs IE sync? I mean sync with what? Don't tell me anybody is using IE outside of WP voluntarily In my opinion they should ease their limitations for other browser vendors like Mozilla (I don't expect Google developing a single of code for WP).

Yes, it is, but I think MS have other projects for WP8.1
