    I'll bite:

    Will XD get any new major features or is the plan to just play catch up for the next 2 years and work on figuring out how to do text underline? I don't see XD as design software currently, I use it as a wire-framing tool and I think a good chunk of the community also considers it incomplete.

    Why is the libraries 'panel' a separate window you have to activate via the menu and not an actual panel? Why not do one better and integrate it with the styles panel?

      We've figured out text underline - agree it took longer than any of us would have liked.

      Yes to new features - we'll be sharing a roadmap soon, so that you'll be able to see what we plan to work on and can provide feedback. At a high level we'll be working on core design and prototyping features, so as to increase the expressiveness of the content you can create in XD.

      Regarding libraries - it's an initial implementation. We're thinking a lot about working with assets, sharing and collaboration, and I expect this to evolve over time.

      Thanks, Andrew (Adobe).

        Just make it a panel, not a window until you figure out better ways to integrate it.

        In Photoshop, I found I'm happy to collapse my panels even if I'd have plenty of space to keep all of them open. It keeps things cleaner.
