For most of these features, no timetable has been established for when the feature will be added. Some may appear in updates in the next few months while others may not be added for years. The time to implementation and priority order for each of these features depends on a number of variable factors, including code contributions from community members, available funding and staff resources The best way to ensure that a feature you care about is implemented quickly is to support it by contributing your time, skills, or financial resources to the project.
