This list is probably out of date, but currently (16/12/2012) I've got the following on my list:
+
(Updated 2013-04-10)
* Improvements to the A-4F, including a radar system and improved FDM.
+
* Improve Basic Weather integration with the Atmospheric Shader.
* Improve tanker support - particularly multiple models.
+
* Review Vivian's changes to the Weather dialog
* Release activities (new Manual, release note)
+
* Modify trees so that there's no need to change the texture set under atmospheric light shading.  This is almost complete and means that trees above the snow-line are snow-covered, and deciduous trees in autumn/winter lose their leaves
I also fly a P&M Quik GT450 aircraft in real life.
+
* Move the loading of trees/buildings from the tile loading into a deferred LoD node so that they only get generated when the user gets closer to them.  This should improve tile loading times and memory occupancy.
