This document looks forward from the last stable public release (currently 1.4). We hope it serves people who wonder when certain features will be implemented or where general development is headed. The document should be taken as a general direction: it is evolving and may be subject to change.

LedgerSMB is being developed as a Core system with many functionalities a business requires. However, some businesses may require different functionalities, or some functionalities may be considered too disruptive to integrate immediately into the core. These functionalities are developed as Add-ons.
