During the 10th Umberto User Workshop in Berlin we asked attendees to prioritize the  topics in the future development of Umberto, by naming the three items of greatest importance to them. Here are the results of this survey:

1. Simplified Net Modeling           7
2. Copy & Paste                          11
3. Undo & Redo                     8
4. Automated Drawing of Arrows           3
5. Improve Sankey Handling           2
6. Multi Language User Interface   3
7. Multi Language of Umberto Models     4
8. New  Calculation Features           8
9. Extend Cost Accounting           6
10. Valuation System Editor             5
11. Dyn. Modeling, MC-Simulation   2
12. Discrete Simulation                   1
13. Optimisation                        1
14. Modernisese User Interface         14
15. Multiple Library DataBases     2
16. Network parallel working       1
17. Edit Networks as Tables           9
18. Context Guide                   1
19. More Assistants                   1

The votes for the individual items, grouped together show a clear demand for improvements of the network editor and improved usability:
Usability     34
Editor        31
Features      30
Interfaces     9
MultiLanguage  5

New feature requests were:
