You can always check (or add to) the Jira "future enhancement" page at:

Well, the new "fast" dictionary module should solve one of the biggest issues, the bottleneck
of the dictionary lookup. Beyond that, it would be nice to decrease the memory footprint of
the dependency parser.

Using UIMA-AS allows for scaleout, in combination with the fast dictionary can allow very
fast processing. Maybe it's not a feature per se, and maybe it will come from an outside project,
but I think infrastructure that makes it easy to get a highly parallel and very fast version
of ctakes up and running would be a nice addition.

(By the way, that's just one interesting example that came to mind, not necessarily the most
important or highest priority!)
