IDEAS - What will Bentley do with them and when?

I have just reviewed the IDEAS in this forum and there are a lot of very good IDEAS and some have been either promoted or demoted in popularity.  But as yet, I cannot recall seeing any of them implemented.  Some of them were suggested at the EAP stage and still didn't make it into the products.....

My questions are:  

  • Have Bentley done anything (reviewed) with these IDEAS?
  • Which IDEAS will become part of the product(s) and what time frame........? (if any)
  • Have we wasted our time suggesting IDEAS?

and finally, will Bentley expose their development plans for the next 12 months, so we can vote on what WE want to be included or not.  (maybe offer this VOTE to those key uses that are ACTIVE in the forums....)

    For myself I'd like Bentley to ask questions and for "ideas" which result in getting the entire community into CE.  I know our office wont move till a few critical issues are resolved because they are "show stoppers" and some of them are not bugs but unforeseen consequences of the changes from v8i to CE.

    Once the community as a whole is actually using CE in it's entirety from 2D to 3D and cloud services in between I'll be more concerned with whats happening to all the Ideas.  Till then i get the feeling allot of the community is still in V8i-SS4 and have no intention of moving into CE yet though i could be wrong.  For a product now 1 year post release that is a pretty big deal.
