What needs improvement?

I mentioned about the distributed architecture in my previous answer, but they did with version 3.5. This time maybe I could add the integration with graph databases like Neo4j.

What needs improvement?

The visualization functionalities are not good (cannot be compared to, for instance, the possibilities in R). The program is not fit for handling very large files or databases (greater than 1GB); it gets too slow and has a tendency to crash... more»
