This document describes the high-level features and actions for the Meteor project in the near-to-medium term future. The description of many items include sentences and ideas from Meteor community members.

Contributors are encouraged to focus their efforts on work that aligns with the roadmap then we can work together in these areas.

As with any roadmap, this is a living document that will evolve as priorities and dependencies shift.
