The version 1.0 considered as stable has been released and will receive updates as minor versions (1.0.1 will be the first).
The version 1.1 is under a heavy development the roadmap can be found here
Currently we're lacking a good End user documentation, help is needed.
How to collaborate
Bluedeivl is a KDE project, so we use the usual ways to communicate to each other, and to work together.
Currently BlueDevil is under extragear/base KDE Project Page
We're using the kde-hardware-devel mailing list kde-hardware-devel
The focus of 1.1 release will be add more Elegance into BlueDevil, for example by adding a better error hanlding, making things react as the user expect etc... There is not a release date for it, but can be expected somewhere close to KDE 4.6 release.
