This may be a long shot request but I think it would be really useful in the long run. I'd like for there to be a SDK or API released so that functionality can be extended by the community similar to the way that the Adobe community is able to add plugins. For example with LR I can buy (or make!) a plugin to export images straight to Instagram. With Luminar it's a much more laborious process of exporting the image and then going into another application to get the image posted to Instagram.
The important thing here is less about the ability to post to Instagram from within Luminar - that's just an example of something that can be done from Lightroom and I wish I could do it in Luminar. The much larger issue is the ability for the community to extend capabilities without having to wait for their particular wish list to make it to the top of the Luminar Devs priority list and get worked.
Having a user extensible product, whether it's via scripts or plugins or whatever, is in the long run a great way to help grow your user base. Certainly most users will never use it except to install other user developed customizations, but they can't do that unless those that would like to develop such things are first enabled to.
