We do not follow "regular releases" concept. We do not think our aim is in adding more and more features to the product making it cumbersome after all.
Instead, we constantly release evolving updates and bugfixes. We do not bug users with the list of fixes and improvements since it is our mission to keep the service up and running without any problems. And customers should concentrate on the implementation of their business process. It's an SaaS after all and the customers should not care what product version they are using: it is always the latest one.
Of course we are looking at Idea Exchange to know what customers need. And even more information we gather from TeamDesk Support.
Well, we do not always mark ideas as "Coming Soon" in time, we promise to reform :)
As for the plans for the nearest future:
* Query Optimization: in certain situations you may gain the performance by rewriting the formulas one way or another. We could try to make TeamDesk less dependent on such tricks.
* Another approach to the API: the API now provides raw data. The idea is to make a special version of the API oriented to building custom HTML front ends (JSON, AJAX)
* Rethinking the relations: currently many-to-many relation serves as an all-purpose tool to achieve the result beyond one-to-many functionality. The idea is to provide more task-oriented relation types.
* Mobile version: build lighter version of the UI for mobile clients.
