New Drupal Modules
This module is a D8 port of one of the plugins in https://www.drupal.org/project/views_arguments_extras.
Using this module will give you a new sort type with a variety of options where you can choose what field to apply the argument values to for sorting.
Note: the arguments (contextual filter) needs to accept multiple arguments and they need to be separated with a + not a , (comma).
Panzoom Images provides a new image field formatter to render the image using
the Panzoom jQuery library (http://timmywil.github.io/jquery.panzoom/).
Drupal 8 provides a complex framework of classes and interfaces that can easily overwhelm new developers. While tutorials cover some of these for certain scenarios, a lot of the low-level tools provided by Drupal Core can remain hidden because no straight-forward examples of their use exist.
Kayak will provide a web frontend to quickly navigate through the Drupal code base and gain a bird's-eye perspective. It will visualize hierarchies and dependencies and explain when and where to use each class or interface.
Drupal core comment module is great for commenting on nodes.
This module provides fieldable comments for any entity even comments itself. Entity Comments integrates with views and rules.Installation

Offline application is a module that allows you to make content from your website available offline. You can configure nodes, views and the menu that will be used as the 'offline app' version of your website. Further configuration includes manifest for adding the content as an app on your homescreen.

Cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) is a subfield of information retrieval dealing with retrieving information written in a language different from the language of the user's query. For example, a user may pose their query in English but retrieve relevant documents written in French.
Menu of Epic Proportions
Colossal Menu is a new type of menu system that is built on content entities rather than the plugin & config system in the core Menu System. This allows for fieldable menu links as well as multiple link types.
Widget for a Machine Name form element.
Machine Name Widget provides a field for the machine_name render element. This module does not provide a UI for configuring the widget, but rather is intended to be used by other modules (i.e. content entities).
Subsite lets you make any node or set of nodes look like a different website by overriding the theme, branding, main menu, and more. Perfect for event and campaign micro-sites etc, subsite has been designed to be used by editors as part of the editorial process. Configuration for each subsite is stored with the node in a field which means it supports content revisions and works with your usual content workflow.
