This roadmap is subject to change and should only be used as a general guideline regarding future SobiPro releases. As long as a version, feature or application is not yet released, the dates are estimated and may alter.
The development process of SobiPro applications is community-driven. We carry out polls in regular intervals. The winning app will be developed next. The polls are available for club members and non-club members.
Not all functionality known by Sobi2, will be implemented at a time, but step by step. Remember that SobiPro is NOT a Sobi2 upgrade, but a totally new component coded from scratch, so everything needs being implemented again.
IMPORTANT: If you have a Sobi2 site and want to switch to SobiPro, first check if all needed functions and add-ons are available for SobiPro also. Also, notice that there's no direct migration tool available, so this should be planned carefully. Ask/check in the forums for how other users have done it.
The already published applications may also have their own roadmap. You will find it in the description page of that app in Download Directory. Just click on the tab 'Roadmap'.

The SobiPro search results are ordered by priority. If several entries in the results list have the same priority, they can be ordered by a second ordering which will be setup in the configuration.
