poll for what features are coming next?
« on: May 04, 2009, 07:57:12 PM »
I think this is a good idea:
http://gerr.info/emvote.php
It's a poll for what features are coming next.
That way we know what to expect from HE in the near future. I like HE but I'd need to port at least 2 languages (ahk, R) so it's a considerable amount of work. I'd consider the investment in all the new coming features are mind-blowing. As it is, it's starting to have more features than any other editor.

What do you think?

That is an awesome idea urlwolf, I could see a deficiency there in features most requested not being put at the top of the page.

Yes, this is a good idea.
But I think in HE case there are not so much users to collect valuable statistics for priority of requested features (only registered user can vote).
(I am also follow em poll results ;) )

And another thing, that somebody should collect already requested features (guys, I am too overloaded to do that. Time for development = time left from day work - support time ;) )

Also there are already plans for 1.50 (+ scripting, and probably minus spell checker), and I want to keep them.
So, if somebody would do poll, I would appreciate that, this would give (probably) more clear view on priorities of features.
Is everybody has rights to start the poll?

I think this was my fault.

Please, somebody start the poll. I'll be very busy for the next 2 weeks at least.
