While we have implemented over 100 new features and fixes, we still have a lot of work to do to perfect and improve our code editor, so here is what we have in mind:

  • Introduce all-mighty search box that searches everything (it was planned for 2015, but we did manage)
  • Add more powerful support for more programming languages and frameworks
  • Maybe: Introduce more powerful SQL features
  • Maybe: Create some sort of online/cloud-based code snippet library
  • Maybe: Introduce visual code navigator
