More Email Notifications are required in Coursepress

Coursepress is amazing plugin but it required lot of features to make it fully function for production quality.

1. Email notifications are required whenever any discussion/course-notification happens. For that matter for every event or action there has to be an email to the person or to the group.

2. User profile has to be much richer then what courspress offers or what is present in wordpress. I do not know why no one addressed these basic things as yet. Please do not ask to install buddypress, because it brings in whole lot of garbage along with it, whereas i just need a rich user profiles page.

Could you please let me know if these features are planed in near future? Thanks.
