It's not visible any evolution in Opencart and the posts at OpenCart Forums are mostly help and support requests.
Has Opencart development stopped ? Is there a Roadmap ?
Roadmap should be an obvious and very visible information and I may have missed it, is it anywhere else ?
I'm using 3.0.3.6 but saw that Softaculus p.ex. already has a 3.0.3.7 version available.
Is there a 3.1 or 3.2 or 4 version planned ? what changes should we expect ?
Thanks.

There is a version 4 in the making, see https://github.com/opencart/opencart , which will have a significantly revised framework. As regards the 3.x branch, the current release is 3.0.3.7, but you can expect a 3.0.3.8 in the not too distant future with more bugfixes, and keeping compatibility with the 3.0.x series of OpenCart.

Override Engine * Integrated VQMod * Unused Images Manager * Instant Option Price Calculator * Number Option * Google Rich Snippets * Google Tag Manager * Export/Import Tool * SpamBot Buster * Survey Plus

Thank you for your prompt reply.
Shouldn't there be a page at Opencart Blog explaining the business features for the new versions, and their expected release dates ?
Regarding the current version 3 shouldn't also be a page explaining what bugs and business functions get updated, corrected, along with the release number and expected release date ?

You won't find any of that with OpenCart. It's basically one person do everything (with occasional help). Versions get released as and when, usually when there is some agreement with an service provider.

As far as releases goes, that's not a problem.
When they are ready they came out, ok, no problem, the roadmap business functionalities, would be good.

What is a problem is if development it's dependent on a single person.
One person guiding development is not a problem, only one person coding and maintaining is the heck of a dependency.
There should be at least two or better three core coders.

That suggestion has been brought to the Founder in the past. Unfortunately, there are no planned development being considered on that side.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
