|Do The Studio One Developers Plan To Implement X, Y, or Z Features?
The Studio One development team doesn't publicly discuss or approve or allow anyone else to publicly discuss upcoming features in advance, so when or if you hear about a new feature it will most likely be from an official press release. Once you are aware of that reality, asking on the forums and expecting an official answer is probably an exercise in futility.
There are valid and logical reasons for not disclosing that type of information.
With that being said, on occasion you may see an official representative or developer here saying something similar to ... "We've discussed (or are discussing) it internally." ... but you should never read too much into those kinds of comments, which are not 'promises' nor official indications of future features.Why Doesn't Anyone From The Development Team Talk To Us Regularly?

They'll do fine in the general market so don't worry so much about it.
As an end user, the only thing that should concern you is if the software is potentially useful for you in whatever version you happen to be evaluating. If it's a good value for the money and helps you to be more musically creative.
