Hopefully XMetaL's marketing director knows well your competition and customers. For customers it is difficult to understand that neither timeline nor feature highlights are communicated in advance. Similar to Heisenberg uncertainty principle you cannot predict which features are available at a defined timestamp in future nor when a defined feature will be available in the product for sure. Ok, but staying silent and charging maintenance fee is expecting a high degree of trust in your company.
I assume you could announce that the product will be enhanced regarding
– CSS feaure support
– DITA, DocBook, … standards
Maybe you can make a list of problems mentioned in posts of this forum that are addressed by the next release?
