Current Development Roadmap
Several features and changes are currently under investigation and may or may not be added to the package in the future.
- Tooltip component for displaying a floating text box at the mouse position when hovering over certain objects (UX).
- Investigating ways of supporting tooltip popup when a Gamepad is in use.
- Color Profile System for quick UI color changes at runtime (Accessibility).
- Assessing how to best support tints for buttons, toggles, sliders, etc.
- Assessing options for swapping entire sprites.
- Genericising Menu Transition Components and spliting them into their own package that isn't dependent on the Menu Framework (Modularity).
- Vulpes Transitions package is currently in an internal preview state.
- Likely to be released along with Vulpes Menu Framework version 0.5.0-preview.1 or 0.6.0-preview.1 at the latest.
- Use of the Unity Jobs System or Threading / Tasks as an alternative to Promises (Performance).
- Currently in very early phase of investigation.
