We know a lot of people are waiting on new features so we've created a road map of the direction we're taking and the current work in progress.

Rather than promising an eta for new features, we've broken the development into stages, which will give an indication of the expected order for delivery of new features.

Each stage will move through the following phases, Design, In Progress, Code Complete, Testing and Release.
