Sandro Groganz has posted some of his thoughts on the future of eZ publish and eZ components, including acknowledgement of the hard work that the projects' developers do.
Now you can take a look into the future of eZ publish development, as well as the eZ components. I have conducted and published an email interview with five of eZ systems' leaders of the development team.
Some of the items listed in the future of eZ components include a framework components, a MVC components, a workflow component and a search component. For eZ publish, there's actually a feature list that's just been published for the latest version - 4.0 - that will be out to the public during the beginning of June.
