Further removing dependencies within awestruct and roadmap
On twitter today we were discussing further removing dependencies in awestruct and requiring the users to explicitly declare them. We're currently thinking about only requiring slim or haml, sass and compass.
Other things would also be coming out and be added to other gems which would focus on blogs (it would include the atomizer module, disqus, intensedebate, tagger, tag cloud and the like) and project web sites (github module, jira, identities, etc). Those are more future plans.
The other future plans include an extension system similar to Compass which could add features into the pipeline. We're still thinking about this so no proposed syntax yet. We're also looking to simplify the whole site generation cycle a bit more and increase performance.
