Roadmap Overview

Welcome to the ClearOS Roadmap! There are some exciting initiatives happening within the ClearFoundation, so please look around and discover what's in store.

Though the ClearFoundation is a new initiative, much of the underlying software and tools have been around for nearly a decade. With the an extensive list of features already in place, we can now spend more resources making the ClearOS platform stronger and better. The long term development focus is to:

  1. Develop and maintain a strong, secure and rock solid core system -- we are avoiding feature creep!
  2. Provide a flexible environment for developers to add features -- see web application framework for details

The community and development talent do a great job at integrating and developing the best of breed technologies and innovative designs. That talent is guided by a global and diverse group of people including leaders in open source world. Buckle your seat belt, it is going to be a fun ride!

Below you'll find the features and initiatives under development. Please keep in mind that the roadmap is not set in stone -- we always run into speedbumps along the way! The ClearFoundation community drives the software roadmap, so tell us what you want next! Check out our forums or email us at
