2 weeks ago we made a large roadmap poster out of four A2 sheets of paper and put it up on the wall in a highly popular place, that is kitchen. The poster shows 2 years in a row:

You can see  initiatives (or epics) rows. Red line is for an epic start date, green line marks release date. Yellow lines show previous and future expectations about releases, but since we are not estimating stories, these are just expectations. Blue line indicates beta-release. Stories and features are represented by yellow sticky notes inside each initiative. The current day is marked by a thread with a marker attached (yes, we utilize gravity force). Future initiatives are marked with large orange sticky notes.

Here is a quick overview of 2010. We completed only 2 major epics and started 3 more that are still in progress.

Currently we are working on Plugins (this epic  has been in production for almost 9 months already) and new Views (the current "in progress" time is 6 months). As you see, we expected to release new Views in April initially, but full JS architecture redesign changed the plans. Quick Add UX activities will be started soon.
