There has been some discussion lately about big changes on the horizon for CamStudio. Mostly, this has been in the form of assorted posts here in the forum. As a user of CamStudio, I am very excited about its potential, but I often wonder which changes will be implemented for certain (say, for 2.6 or 3.0), and which ones are more like "wishlist" items. A few examples: DirectShow, GDI+, alternative GUI framework (gtk+, qt), better AVI support, updated CS lossless codec, and a transition from C++ to C#. Some of these are already being worked on (e.g. DirectShow), and others are on hold (C++ to C#).
Is there currently a roadmap for future development? I've been searching for something concrete, but haven't found anything. I believe a roadmap written by the devs, with input from users, would be very beneficial to the project. It would provide focus for developers, generate interest from users, and improve everyone's overall perception of and belief in CamStudio. It might even help attract new developers, who may look at the roadmap and say, "Hey, I can code ! Sign me up!!" Ideally, IMHO, it would exist on a wiki, readily accessible from the camstudio.org home page. If something like this already exists, my apologies. I obviously didn't search well enough. ;-)
Additionally, I assume there must be some communication going on between the developers to keep things synchronized and flowing smoothly (?). Getting such discussion out in the open, e.g. on a traditional mailing list, would further improve focus and interest.
Just my opinions. Any thoughts? I understand there is a principle here that he who suggests the task, owns it. I'm not sure what I can do to help, but if I can, I will. :-)
