# Roadmap for Vue Material beta! As I told [couple months ago](https://github.com/vuematerial/vue-material/issues/921), I am developing a new Vue Material from scratch, with better support, an easy way to integrate and way more reliable. And this new version is just around the corner. I received a lot of issues and complains regarding support for SSR, validation, integration with 3rd party libs and many others. So I after ~6 months on this bad boy, more than 500 files, ~28k loc and ~800 commits I now announce that the beta is coming! The release strategy will be like this: - The first beta will be released at the beginning of November, with all goodies and a closed API. At this moment the documentation will be pretty much done, but with some components delayed to next version. - After that, a migration guide will be developed to make the transition between the old version. - A cycle of beta versions will happen to solve the issues and small improvements until a stable arrives. - The current repository will be replaced with new one. I will give a small support for the 0.7.5 version to solve important issues only. - The stable version will be released with 1.0.0 number. - I will solve the issues after the stable release while I focus on the next 1.1.0 version, with the components the didn't entered on 1.0 - Boilerplates, Nuxt template and further guides will be created ## Key Features - Automatic constrast ratio - YES! The theme factory will calculate the contrast between the background and text to give the correct black or white color. - On demand themes! Create themes only for the components that you're really using - Pre made theme colors - Dynamic themes - Easy to toggle features, like ripple, theming, locale values and more - Better support for Vue Router, with autosync on navigation components - Highly extensible and easy to create 3rd-party components - Namespaced attributes - ~30% lighter than 0.7.5 - New and Awesome on-demand components - SSR Support - Well-tested - WIP 100% coverage - Easy i18n - Minimalist and performant docs ## 1.0.0 roadmap ### Core Stuff - [X] Themes - `NEW API` - [X] Deprecated theme component - [X] Sass Based themes - [X] Multiple themes - [x] CSS Variables - [ ] CSS-only themes - [X] SSR Support - `NEW` - [X] Basic Support ### Components - [X] MdAutocomplete - `NEW API` - [X] MdApp - `NEW` - [X] Documentation - [X] Reusable App Shell component - [X] Integration with Toolbar, Drawer and Content - [X] MdAvatar - [X] MdBottomBar - [X] Router integration - `NEW` - [X] Router Sync - `NEW` - [X] Symple way to trigger active item - [X] MdButton - [X] Router integration - `NEW` - [x] MdCard - [x] Documentation - [X] Better image handle - [X] Expand action - [X] MdCheckbox - [X] Array - `NEW` - [X] Boolean - [X] String - [X] MdChips - [X] Editable - [X] Detelable - [X] MdContent - `NEW` - [x] MdDatepicker - `NEW` - [x] Documentation - [X] FINALLY! - [X] Month Selector - [X] Year Selector - [x] Disable Dates - [ ] Locale aware - [X] MdDialog - [X] Alert - [X] Confirm - [X] Prompt - [X] Custom - [X] MdDivider - [X] MdDrawer - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [x] Deprecate md-sidenav - [X] Persistent - `NEW` - [X] Permanent - `NEW` - [X] Mini - `NEW` - [X] Card - `NEW` - [X] Clipped - `NEW` - [X] Left/Right - [X] MdElevation - `NEW API` - [X] Deprecate whiteframe component - [X] Elevation classes - [X] MdEmptyState - `NEW` - [X] MdField - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [X] Change md-input-container to md-field - [X] Input/Textarea - [X] Checkbox - [X] Radio - [X] Switch - [X] File - `NEW API` - [x] Select - [X] MdIcon - [X] MdLayout - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [X] Deprecate layout component - [X] New flexbox/responsive/class-based grid - [X] MdList - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [X] Router integration - [X] Expansion - [X] Input Controls - [X] MdMenu - `NEW API` - [X] MdProgress - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [X] Spinner - [X] Bar - [X] 0%/100% progress - [X] Indeterminate state - [X] MdRadio - [ ] MdRipple - `NEW API` - [ ] Documentation - [X] New ripple - [ ] Abstract component - [ ] Performance improvements - [X] MdSnackbar - [X] Documentation - [X] Themed Snackbar - [X] MdSpeedDial - `NEW API` - [X] Click Action - [X] Multiple Effects - [X] MdSteppers - `NEW API` - [X] Documentation - [X] Horizontal - [X] Vertical - [X] MdSubheader - [X] MdSwitch - [ ] MdTable - `NEW API` - [ ] Documentation - [X] Basic table - [X] Sort - [X] Fixed Header - [ ] Inline Edit - [ ] Dialog Edit - [x] Selection - [ ] Pagination - [x] Alternate Header - [X] MdTabs - [X] Documentation - [X] Router integration - `NEW` - [X] Router Sync - `NEW` - [X] Symple way to trigger active tab - [X] MdToolbar - `NEW API` - [X] MdTooltip ### Docs pages - [ ] Advanced - [ ] Guide - [ ] Extending Vue Material - [ ] Third Party Components - [X] About - [X] Changelog - [ ] Components summary - [ ] Contribute - [X] Getting Started - [ ] Migration Guide - [X] Static docs - [X] Themes - [X] Configuration - [ ] Dynamic Themes - [ ] UI Elements summary ** Components/Features marked with a `NEW` label do not exists on the current version ** Components/Features marked with a `NEW API` can introduce major breaking changes. ** Mostly of unchecked components are only demanding a new docs page.
