I would just like to drop a word of thanks that the roadmap is provided. We are all aware that it might turn out differently, but it really helps a lot to have an idea what is being planned.

The roadmap is very helpful. Can an updated be provided on the roadmap? Is IDE development still on track, of particular interest is the Maven Support? At this moment, we are determining if we want to move our Liferay projects to Maven and one of the criteria points is IDE support.

We have plans for spring-mvc-portlet support in IDE in the future. Hopefully with 2.0 version of IDE. http://issues.liferay.com/browse/IDE-463

Hi Esa Hekmat,

We don't have any 4.2 specific features planned as of yet. Did you have anything in mind?
