]po[ V4.1 Roadmap

  • Expected Final Release: 11/2014
  • Current Status: planning

Important new AJAX development will take longer than expected, so we have decided to release one last "pure HTML" version of ]po[.
This version is basically a bug fix release for V4.0 with limited new functionality.

  • [CSV Import - Master Data Import]:
    This package allows to import Projects, Users, Tickets and other business objects from CSV (Excel) tables.

  • Localization:
    V4.1 will include updated translations for English, German, Spanish and several other languages. We have also fixed a number of untranslatable strings.


]po[ V5.0 Roadmap

  • Expected Final Release: 4/2015, alpha planned for 11/2014
  • Current Status: planning only

We haven't been able to release a number of AJAX development in V4.0 because of license issues related to the AJAX libraries used.
In V5.0 we plan to change our licensing: The "Community Edition" will be release completely under GPL V3, while the "Pro" and "Enterprise Editions" will be released under GPL V2 plus a proprietary license. Here is a list of features that we currently consider for inclusion:

  • PostgreSQL 9.x Support:
    This version will be based on PostgreSQL 9.2 or higher.
    There are incompatibilities between PostgreSQL 8.4 and 9.x, so ]po[ V5.0 will probably NOT work on PostgreSQL 8.4.
    ]po[ V5.0 will also include OpenACS  5.8 or higher.

  • General: Sencha Ext-JS AJAX GUI:
    We plan to include more and more AJAX features in ]po[ during the next versions. We will start with the most frequently used pages and portlets and work towards the rest of the system. However, the total number of  pages (more then 1.000) will not allow us to completely rewrite the system. The AJAX GUI will probably be based on the Sencha Ext-JS AJAX framework  with the ]po[ REST interface as a backed that tightly integrates with the Ext.data.Store data layer.
  • Sencha Gantt Editor:
    This new package is supposed to replace the old plain-HTML Gantt bars in the ]po[ GUI and allow users to work with ]po[ without the help of an external Gantt editing application like MS-Project, GanttProject, OpenProj or ProjectLibre.
    The idea is to use:

    • Sencha TreeGrid component for the processing of textual information of project tasks (name, start- and end date, resource, ...),
    • customize a Grid cell in order to display Gantt bars and to
    • use a kind of "overlay" or DIV on top of the TreeGrid in order to display the dependency arrows going back- and forth between the tasks.
    • The GUI operations of the Sencha Gantt Editor should be as close as possible to the commercial standard.
    Please comment on the package page page or send us feedback at info@project-open.com  if you are interested to participate (designing, developing or testing).

  • Sencha Portfolio Resource Leveling Editor:
    This editor similar in appearance to the Gantt Editor, but shows only main projects together with the accumulated resource load per user or department.
    This editor is designed for PMOs or project directors in order to answer questions like: "Do we have the resources to complete our projects in time?" or "Where are the bottlenecks in our organization?"

  • App Store:
    We plan to setup an online store to allow users to download and install add-on packages provided by the ]po[ core team and other entities.

  • Collaboration integrated with PM:
    ]po[ already contains a Wiki, discussion forums, file storage, chat and a number of important collaboration features from it's underlying OpenACS   platform. Now we want to integrate these collaboration features into the "hard" project management of ]po[, allowing customers to get the best of the two worlds combined.
    Technically, most of the work has already been done. In particular the Wiki already allows to include ]po[ Portlets so that users can mix text with project-related data. So most of the work will be to create credible sample data.

  • SAP FI Import - Master Data Import:
    The SAP FI import allows administrators to quickly import information about project and users from SAP FI using a manual upload process. The basic import is already working. However, we will need to streamline the process in order to provide casual uses with the necessary guidance.

  • Funambol integration:
    Funambol is a SyncML server allowing to sync tasks and contacts between MS-Outlook, iPhone, Android and other SyncML capable PIM applications.
    Currently (2012-02-20), ]po[ includes an experimental sync of tasks with Funambol. We expect that this integration will become mature for ]po[ V4.1 and include support for customers, providers and contacts.

  • TaskJuggler Integration:
    V4.1 will probably include a round-trip integration with TaskJuggler.org to allow for "resource levelling" of projects.­ TaskJuggler  is an enterprise open-source scheduling engine.An experimental version of the TJ integration already exists at the moment (2012-02-20) but is not ready for production use.

  • Project Portfolio Margin Tracker:
    This Sencha AJAX widget shows the development of current project margins vs. baseline values.

  • Project Milestone Tracker:
    This Sencha AJAX widget shows the development project project milestones over time.

  • Sencha File Storage (may be implemented in ]po[ V5.1):
    This new package is supposed to replace the old file storage package from the very beginnings of ]project-open[. The new package is supposed to contain the following features. Please comment on the package page page or send us feedback at info@project-open.com  if you are interested to participate (designing, developing or testing):
    • AJAX single-page architecture with a collapsible tree
    • Drag-and-drop of files both inside the FS tree and from the Windows/Linux client computer
    • File versioning

ITSM/ALM Extensions:

  • [Subversion Integration]:
    We plan to integrate with Surversion in order to be able to associate SVN commits with ]po[ tickets and projects and to create SVN configuration files based on ]po[ data.
  • [Mylyn Integration]:
    We plan to integrate the Eclipse Mylyn plugin with ]po[, allowing Eclipse users to consult tasks and log hours in ]po[
