This page decribes how we plan that SDS will be extended from wherever it is at the moment (we're at 0.5.17). The current releases are for developers to check functionality and to add new stuff. They're also releases which we want feedback on new functionality so it can be incorporated in later releases, and not least: bug-reports (see the Sourceforge bug-report page).

Our next target is the

    0.5.18 - release date: april 2001
    - bugfixing
    - improvement of sdoc-output
    - improvement of csf-linking and prettification
    - improvement of C/C++ frontend    

Please check the sds-devel archive to read the full announcements with all juicy details.
