Well, our development resources are limited, and sponsored features,
consulting, support, integration work,... has priority,
most of the time.

So it all happens much slower than some people would like
and there is no release date set for the initial version.

incomplete planned feature list in no particular order:

 * multiple Secondaries without stacking
 * support for daisy chaining of replication "hops"
 * "arbitrarily" large devices
 * full data log to support point-in-time recovery of arbitrary block data
 * support for time-shift replication (have one of the secondaries
   consistently lag behind by $configurable)
 * more than two Primaries
 * all sorts of performance improvements

Any particular reason you ask, a favorite feature you'd like to sponsor?
