The growth in mirrorless shipments rose, the growth in DSLR shipments shrank.

There is NO WAY that Canon will decrease megapixel count. Megapixels can only go up, never down as that is difficult for marketing to overcome. They could only go down by creating a new camera on a different line for a special purpose. Otherwise, for MP to go down, the specs would have to be incredible. 1DX type specs. Canon isn't going to hand down the 1DX sensor and shutter to the 5D line. I don't remember a 2nd tier pro camera inheriting the previous generation flagship specs. The flagship models keep certain strengths for longer.
You mean like the a7s? Did that camera not make waves, even though its pixel count was way down over the original a7 cameras?
I just hope the library management is more robust.
I far prefer LRs edits / processing over Aperture, but every photo winds up in Aperture for me anyways because it handles library management far better IMO.
Can you be specific?
The only think I can think he means is that Aperture has a managed database option. Personally, that's not for me, if for no better reason than it doesn't work well with my backup strategy. For the short time I used Aperture, I managed the files myself in folders rather than allowing it to shove everything into a single amorphous blob.
The managed database is a big part of it, as is Apple's excellent Vault system for backups. I also far prefer how the keywording, folders projects, and smart albums function in Aperture.
I find that the amorphous blob for me is more organized than the multiple LR libraries I find myself creating to handle items from multiple jobs. I can have multiple projects, folders, and ultimately jobs in the same Aperture library, whereas I find I can't separate jobs as well in LR.
I am excited by the new XXL pano option. Maybe it'll replace gigapano for me!

In Australia, the 5DS R has already been superseded.....http://www.canon.com.au/en-AU/Personal/Support-Help/Product-Help/Camera-Accessories/EOS-Digital-SLR-Cameras/EOS-5DSR
Every pixel is converted to a 14-bit number, that whole chunk of data is read 14 times per second for the 1Dx, or five times per second for the 5Ds. The data throughput of the DIGIC chips MUST be able to handle the RAW PIXEL INPUT throughput, which is:
Canon 1D X: 19,000,000px * 14bit/px / 8bit/byte * 14fps = 465,500,000byte/s
5Ds: 53,000,000px * 14bit/px / 8bit/byte * 5fps = 463,750,000byte/s
