Do you have RoadMap of what will (or rather may) be added to FS over the next 12 to 24 months?
I am just very keen to hear about what is in the pipeline, specifically as it relates to a features like the following...
UI Builder (WYSIWYG editor for the UI)
What new controls will be supported
Plug-in support (3rd party controls)
Dynamic Controls (control arrays)
2D graphics support (for things like Flowcharts, basic diagramming)
Themes (predefined themes for the UI that can be switched easily in code or via an application property)
I am of course also interested in anything else you may have planned other than what is listed above.
You will see us deliver Formspider for Mobile Web, iOS (native) and Android (native). We will deliver a drag and drop GUI Designer. We will integrate Formspider with Git. We will also implement reusable libraries in Formspider.
The iOS and Android native renderers will initially be using HTML5+PhoneGap. We may also build 100% native renderers (i.e. native controls instead of HTML5+PhoneGap) at a later time.
The road map should be mostly completed by the end of 2014. The order of implementation of features or changes in the road map depend on our customers. We work with them very closely and prioritize the list of the things we will deliver next accordingly to ensure the success of the projects they are working on. In general here is the way we prioritize what to deliver:
1) Requests from customers with professional support contracts 2) Requests from customers who purchased a license 3) Requests from the user community
