Does someone know what kind of improvements / new features will be added to SO 2014 ?

What about the following ones :
- Full support of ODF format (ODS,ODP...)
- WordPerfect Import / Import for Linux version
- Support for OLE / external files in Presentation
- Diagramming software
- Vector Graphics Editor
- Project management software
- email Client for Linux

Regards,

Arnaud

Since there are so many established diagramming and project management softwares are available (free and paid) online and offline, it will take a tremendous amount of time and effort to cut into this competitive market. Therefore, rather than expanding in horizontal by introducing new software such as "project management etc," it is prudent to strengthen the existing products.

First and foremost what I would like to see is a "Grammar Checker" for Softmaker. I also would like to see the ability of Softmaker to integrate with popular Bibliography softwares such as Endnote, Zotero, and Papers.

If development of all these features take too much time and effort making Softmaker to take advantage of 3rd party softwares via extensions would be viable solution.
Other suggested features such as
-Full support of ODF format (ODS,ODP...)
- WordPerfect Import / export
- Support for OLE / external files in Presentation
-vector graphics editor
are also worth to consider
