# roadmap

Versions 1.2 – 1.5 will be incremetal improvements. By version 1.5 we want to have the following in place:

  • multiple user accounts with different permissions and access
  • a stable architecture for extensions and plug-ins
  • generated HTML to conform to W3C XHTML standard
  • ‘mail to a friend’ tool
  • opaque data structures with a documented API
  • cleaner code, and a documented set of functions, classes and methods that third-party programmers can use (and trust)
  • easier navigation, interface improvements and a general clean up in the administration
  • developer documentation

Version 2.0 plans to offer the possibility to use a database as the backend, rather than the current flat file system.
