For betas adding new features and so on, it would be really nice to have a place where we can know (maybe a beta participation program that people willing to participate can join) what features/modifications are on the roadmap as well as how their are going to be implemented.
That would allow at least :
- Customers to have a real vision of the future of the product (not only "super new stuff is coming")
- Collaboration between participating customers and dev team with comments, suggestions, questions about the the roadmap. Who know maybe users/customers of the product might have great ideas about what could improve it or what would be a regression.
- Having some beta testers willingly to test the new features on a testing environnement as they are being implemented and report issues/comments/suggestions
A bit like the windows insider program where you can decide to install currently in dev builds, knowing that there can be issues, but allowing to test and feedback about things as they are being implemented.
Could maybe be a win-win situation :)
