A new roadmap has been released detailing the next steps for Meteor, catering to many of the community requests and most importantly encouraging everyone to participate.
The most notable features of this roadmap are:
Update to Node.js 12
Ultra-thin Meteor (Mongo-less Meteor)
Hot Module Replacement
Update Cordova to 9
This announcement sets out a clear example on how the new Meteor management intends to correct past mistakes, mainly, the lack of communication.
Again, if you've a couple of minutes to spare, please take a look at the new roadmap.
