This page gives some direction of what we hope the next few releases will contain.
It should be updated as new releases come out, or the themes/emphasis of a release change.
Of course this is all highly subject to change based on what the user community needs, and what community developers choose to work on.
The release numbering is also subject to change.

Larger Wish List Items
A few things are worth calling out as desirable in case they are motivating to developers who really want to have an impact!
- IDE for DFDL - such as a NetBeans enhancement for authoring and exercising DFDL schemas
- Integration of Daffodil with Apache Beam, Spark, Flink, or numerous other data tools.
