The next release will include plugin installation from the admin panel. Also, because SQL usage with Strapi is currently not intuitive, we are going to offer a better CLI user experience (database type prompt and table structure verification). Last be not least, relations between app and plugins models are currently not possible, what will be fixed.
API usage analytics is crucial for every companies. For that specific reason, we plan to offer, at the end of January, a brand new plugin called Analytics. Thanks to it, you will be able to get unique and precise insights about what your users do with your API. Please contact us if you want to be part of the beta program.
Many of you gave us a list of wanted features. However, it becomes difficult to quantify these requests to prioritise the next features development. To improve that, we are going to add a new page on the website. This page, inspired by the Webpack's Vote system, will allow all of you to up-vote, down-vote and suggest features you would like in Strapi.
In the meantime, please comment this article to let us know what features you would like next.
