Best answer

The previous roadmap is mostly still valid. The only thing that didn't make it into 1.7 was:

  • More flexible custom HTML areas (widgets), and allowing widget plugins to be placed on page plugins.

And I still intend to implement the ones for 1.8:

  • An improved Notifications system: post replies, wall posts, PMs for each user will be more visible on-site (e.g. an icon/number like Facebook/Reddit/Stack Exchange).
  • More control over which pages are displayed (e.g. completely turning off the Users page), and ordering of menu items.
  • Comment voting.
  • Allow user to sort answers by votes/time.
  • Page caching.

Three new features have already been implemented (first 2 by pupi1985):

  • Number formatting characters (decimal point, thousands separator) can be specified in language files.
  • Numbers (for votes, views etc) can be compacted e.g. 1.3k instead of 1300.
  • Switch to schema.org microdata.

A few more minor coding things that may also be implemented:

  • Use AJAX for closing questions.
  • Confirmation dialog when navigating away from the current page while writing a question/answer.
  • Convert the category widget into a real widget plugin.

Yes I am asking about completely changing Feedback page to contact us page. Contact Us page is one of the things which make a website look professional.

@Scott, thank you for the roadmap!  On feature that I think would dramatically increase traffic is subscription via email to questions/user posts/category new posts.  You mentioned notification but that is on-site.  How about email notification.

Also when I currently receive email notification it does not allow me to unsubscribe.

@Scott, are you planning to implement remaining features from this list?....or you can release v1.8 now then implement remaining features in v1.8.1. It is more than a year since we released last version.

You can freeze github code, I can test for few days before we release.

Please let me know your views.
