< Orion‎ | Plan


This document is a place to brainstorm about what we want to do in 0.4.

See the official plan document here.


Most of the work in Orion should fall under some agreed upon themes for the release. This is a working list of ideas. If some themes can be coalesced into others that is fine. To start this is a fairly large list which needs to be prioritized.
