Future Software Roadmap

Currently, openEFM has reached a 1.3 distribution version. This version has incorporated the features listed below. However, feature milestones have been outlined in order to reach the next 2.0 distribution version. These features are listed below.

The software's version number plan is to increment the point release for every feature of the next full release. For example, if better notification of system and configuration errors were incorporated into the v1.0 code base then a new point release, v1.1, could be issued. Numbers after the point release are reserved for bug fixes. So if a bug was found in the new notification system, and fixed, then the new release version would be 1.1.1.
