  1. Support display groups in physics simulation

    Currently if you stick a physics object in a display group and move that group you wind up severing the link between the physics and the rendering. It'd be great if Corona could support the full range of transformations enabled by groups in the physics engine.

          • Support for Game Center and Flurry in simulator

            It would be much easier to work with Game Center if there was support for it in the simulator. Also Flurry would be easier to test from the simulator.

            • Provide an API for making 9 patch / slice easier

              This is already possible for a developer building their own solution in Lua, but could be made easier via specific APIs

              • Create phonegap (cordova) webviews

                Allow the creation of native phonegap views that can communicate back and forth with the corona lua code.
                Example:
                -Lua Code: Send a javascript string to be executed on the phonegap view
                -Phonegap: Send a json object to a listener function that was set on the lua code.

                • Vector graphics support

                  Add native API support for rendering vector graphics formats (SVG, more) to allow MUCH smaller size applications and not needing multiple PNGs for many resolutions, keeping graphics sharp and small on all platforms and screen sizes.

                  display.newVectorObject(group, "filename.svg", x1,y1,x2,y2)
                  will render it on screen like a normal newImageRect()

                        • Video Render to Texture

                          It would be a really useful addition if we could render videos on the Open GL canvas. native.newVideo() is a useful API but since the videos are native display objects they cannot be layered beneath other display objects. Having the ability to nest videos within display groups would be hugely helpful.

                            • Corona Level Editor

                              Admin note: See Corona Composer: http://coronalabs.com/products/composer-gui/

                              Admin note: We have publicly stated that, for now, Levels has been de-prioritized. We feel it is more important to work on the core platform. Plus, there are several 3rd party tools that do the job well. You can see them here: http://www.coronalabs.com/resources/3rd-party-tools-and-services/
                              You are free to vote on this, but we want to be clear that it is not something we are currently planning on doing.
