First of all: please do not e-mail feature suggestions directly to the developers
(unless you would like to sponsor the development). There are two much better places
for feature requests:
Note: subscribing to technical support services will
considerably increase the chances that your suggested feature will be implemented.
Using the Feature Request Tracker
The tracker helps to keep all the requests for enhancements in one place, and to find a
source of information if we would decide to implement a particular feature. Go through the
following steps when sending a feature suggestion:
- If you have not registered on the SourceForge.net Web site, please do that before posting a
feature request (see more information below).
- Go to the feature request
- Make sure you are logged in.
- Search existing requests for similar features. If it's already there, just
post another comment, instead of adding a similar item to the tracker.
- If you have not found an existing feature request, consider adding a new one.
- Choose an informative subject line.
- Describe the suggested feature providing as many details as possible, including
links to existing examples, similar software etc.
Why Registration Is Necessary?
Technically, it is possible to post a feature request anonymously. The registration simply
enables sending you notifications on any changes in the request status. Also, as a
registered user, you will automatically receive all the comments attached to your request.
Note that such comments can include clarification inquires from project developers, or
information on possible alternative solutions.
