Living Roadmap

The JEDI Ideas Portal captures your thoughts on how we can make JADE work better for you. Everything logged on the JEDI Ideas Portal has a status. The ideas with these statuses represent features that make up the roadmap.

  1. Planned
    We’ve prioritised this feature and expect to ship it in a release.

  2. Executing
    We’re actively working on this feature and expect to ship it in the next release. 

  3. Ready for release
    It’s done! You’ll see this feature in the next release.

Items with a status of future consideration haven’t been prioritised for the next release. We’ll revisit them in the future as we have capacity.

IDE-related ideas are now separated into the IDE backlog status. This status is similar to “Future consideration"; that is, we haven’t prioritised the ideas for the 2020 roadmap but will bring them in based on capacity.
