  • Plug-in System

    Theia's workbench shell will be improved, such that the user can drag and drop widgets from the side bar to the main area and vice-versa.

  • Test Adapter Support

    Integration with testing frameworks, based on a Test Adapter Protocol.

  • Robustness and Improved UX

    We will further work on simplifying Theia and its UI / UX, improve the performance and keep working on bug reports that are rolling in.

    Any contributors might want to work on additional things. At least this happened in 2017 and is likely to increase with a growing community. :)
