Hi Arno & Markus,
roadmaps are always a tricky business and we cannot possibly make everyone happy. We spend a lot of time balancing the efforts between editions, balancing the needs of our very wide customer base and spend tremendous amount of time talking to our customers and partners - as we pride ourselves on being customer driven company.
Asking us to fix "all existing problems" is a very broad request and bordering an impossible one. Here is an example: We've done a polling on our customers and majority said they don't want permissions on child libraries (for the sake of simplicity), yet Markus is asking us will we do it the right way - with permissions, so we have a bit of a situation here. :)
Also, you have to keep in mind that not being able to connect Sitefinity with their SharePoint instance is actually a pretty big problem for quite a few people. So, we are working very hard on assessing actual business cases our clients and partners have and we don't think in terms of features.
We are trying to be completely fair and transparent to all our customers, hence we have PITS system where everyone can vote on the issues (and keep in mind this is not bugs, but more often feature requests) they'd like to resolve.
Finally, how is implementing a new dashboard different from implementing a Mobile App Builder? Both of those are "new features"; so it's not really fixing existing problems. We do understand that for you those are important, so, we have logged them and they will be evaluated - but there is thousands of other people that have a different opinion on how would they like Sitefinity to evolve. This is also one of the main reasons why we spend so much time making Sitefinity extensible, as we cannot possibly make everyone 100% happy and cover all the edge cases (though we try our best).
Finally - @Arno, yes the issue you have linked will be fixed. @Markus, many of the improvements you'd like to see will happen, but we can't make roadmap on such a low level. We use release notes for a detailed debrief on what has been done.
