The Omega changelog and release roadmap section of the Omega Handbook is intended to serve as a method for tracking changes to the Omega theme.
Making it easier to outline a roadmap to future minor and major releases. With a surge in support and feature requests in the issue queue, it has become quite difficult to sort through the issues that are truly pending a new release, and thus makes releases slower to get out the door.
This section will outline (by project and version number) the current (and future) releases of Omega Framework components, detailing the features/bugs that are being addressed in the upcoming release(s).
