If you have a feature you would like added, feel free to contact us. Below are features we either have already planned or are discussing. Make sure to also check out our changelog.

Note: We take performance very seriously, and it will always be taken into account. Thankfully developing the plugin with this in mind from the beginning allows us to more easily add features while ensuring they aren’t loaded everywhere if not enabled.
