Here's my list:

1)  Peformance improvements.
2) A slicker User Interface. Ability to let the user work in an offline mode (Google Gears!) and sync periodically.
3)  Good user and developer documentation.
4)  Better public APIs (rework Store and Continuum)

Just some thoughts,

I strongly agree to the proposed technology changes, particularly in the
database, as it will definitely improve the storage performance.  In line
with the objectives to make Continuum a slick CI server, I think the design
changes is a good move as well.  In my opinion, having plugins will provide
a platform for flexibility and a workflow-type of approach in managing the

My proposed features would be the following:
1.  Aside from the improvement in the UI, I think a visual representation of
statistics would be nice.  Graphs of the success rates, charts of project
health, etc.  I think Bamboo has it as telemetry.
2.  Distributed builds, this has been started before but it was never used.
I think this would be a strong point in using Continuum if it were
available.  Hudson has it, iirc.  I think implementing it as a plugin would
provide more control to it.

Again, just my thoughts.

Some comments

Database vs xml: definitely database. Throwing away the db access api
(JDO/JPA/...) now that it's already there doesnt make much sense.
Maybe there are implementations that use xml for storage and that's
where you'd need to look if you want file storage

Spring vs Guice vs Plexus: Spring for sure. Big community, lots of
users, documentation, support,... Specially if you want to add JMX
support (can be done really easily just with annotations using
reflection), and thinking in OSGi in the future I'm sure it will be
really easy to integrate Spring and OSGi if it is not already. I'd
start softly, just migrating thing that would require adding features
to plexus, and move from there.

I agree with Brett on having 1.2, 1.3,... it's good to have a list of
what you want to do for 2.0 but as it gets done it should be released
in minor versions.

I could give you my word as a Spaniard.
No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
