Offlate there have been multiple things cooking at JV-Extensions and we thought it would be a good idea to share them with our stakeholders. In addition to the bug fixes and minor feature enhancements that we plan to provide on all our products, we are also thinking big with some great addons.
So this is how the high level roadmap for our products looks like for this year... This is a plan and a direction for evolution of our products and we welcome you to add to it with your feature requests or what you would like to see in them in 2014!
