Sana's Roadmap Portal offers a sneak peek into what product developments we’re planning. We are hopeful that the below can shed some light on our roadmap, but it is important to understand that it is being shared for informational purposes only.

Our main focus for 2019 will be improving Sana's design system / functionality.
1) Visual Designer - our improved drag & drop CMS for creating and updating content in a visual way. 
2) Design front-end framework based on React with great performance improvements and the first steps towards a Progressive Web App (PWA) and other headless solutions.

Sana Admin Dashboard

expected Sana 9.4 / 9.4+ release
We will enrich Sana Admin with an intelligent dashboard where customers get warnings / recommendations relating to their web store. This dashboard will most likely get an Action Centre so that shop owners can easily see if everything is all right with their shop.

Standard integration with product configurator e-Con

expected Sana 9.3.4 release
We are currently investigating standard integration with the product configurator e-Con out-of-the-box (Sana requires e-Con version 2019-02-18 or newer). This might be done through an extension point which potentially also could be used by other product configurators.

Improved Sana design framework

expected Sana 9.4 / 9.4+ release
We are currently investigating various improvements to Sana's design and front-end framework. In the short term, we will focus on adding more flexibility in changing the design of the header / footer.

We also started with huge performance improvements by implementing a design front-end framework (React JS). This will make our Sana web stores extremely fast, and will be first step towards a Progressive Web App. We are also working on a more advanced Design System which consists of a Sana style guide, pattern library and a component library in the longer term.
