Hi chad, thank you for your awesome work.
Anyway I tried this plugin and compiling succeed.
But when I load in Maya2015, some errors occurred.

// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2015/scripts/startup/ChaDeformationsMenu.mel line 44: setParent: Object 'MayaWindow|mainDeformMenu' not found. // 
# Error: RuntimeError: file C:/Users/ARIMITSU/Documents/maya/2015-x64/scripts\cvwrap\ line 22: Error occurred during execution of MEL script
file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2015/scripts/startup/ChaDeformationsMenu.mel line 44: setParent: Object 'MayaWindow|mainDeformMenu' not found. # 

Is there any solution?

Looks like the menus are different in 2015. You can comment out the code in pluginMain.cpp where it calls the menu creation code.

Whats the way to force maya to log per node timing information to output window like in the end of multi-threading deformer video?

Hi Chat
Thankyou for your awesome wrap deformer. It works super well, only thing i can not get to work with it are front of chain blendshaps. Could you give an example how to set this up?
Kind regards,
