New modules planned for UNA 11
While we are closing up the UNA 10 developing cycle it is time to plan the general scope for UNA 11. Various improvements and features are on the table, and the list will be settling over the next few weeks. Now we'd like to announce the main new modules that will be developed for UNA 11.
The main priority for UNA 11 will be in the area of learning management. Better tools for informative content presentation, progress assessment and collaboration would benefit any kind of community and would allow us to unify our own resources, such as documentation, tutorials, FAQs, etc. Ultimately we want to to be fully capable as a base for a social LMS - Learning Management System.
Content-type app for knowledge-base, documentation, FAQs, APIs reference, etc. with collaborative editing, media attachments, multi-level navigation, version history, comments and local search.

Content-type app for step-by-step Guides. Each Guide is a single-page document with multiple subsections linked via an anchor-list menu. Reading progress recorded for each viewer. Gallery-style browsing, support for UNA Categories, Labels/hashtags, media attachments, WYSIWYG editing. Guides publishing is only available to Admins by default.

Knowledge assessment module, similar to Polls and Quizzes, but with broader assessment capabilities and specific features like support for open-ended and multiple-select questions; results private between Teacher (test author) and Student (test undertaker); post-to-specific user to test individually; post-to-context to post within a "Course" (powered by Groups, Spaces or Events); question "weight" - 1 to 5 points; percentile, pass/fail and AtoF grading.

Please, note that these new modules will be first developed in the most basic "MVP" form. There may be changes in naming conventions and features sets as well. We may also pull some of them or add other modules as well.
Also, note that these modules don't represent an exhaustive list of features planned for v11. We share this list to give an idea of what kind of completely new UNA apps to expect. UNA 11 will also include core improvements, SEO and performance improvements, native apps improvements, reorganised timelines, system-wide embeds and other enhancements, which you may track on the UNA 11 milestone page - https://github.com/unaio/una/milestone/5..
As for prepackaged solutions - we are yet to release the first one - Dolphin SNS, which is configured at https://dolphin.una.io and will be available for cloning after UNA 10 final release. After the UNA 11 release, we plan to provide LMS and Dating solutions.
