Any plans to support other popular providers?

I saw in the roadmap that the team plans to support:
  • Google OAuth2 - Middleware component for supporting Google's OAuth2 protocol implementation.
  • WS-Federation - Middleware component supporting the WS-Federation protocol for federated identity in an OWIN pipeline.
I wonder would be there any plans to add other popular providers like LinkedIn, vKontakte, etc?

The community has already started to provide these. Here's some examples for LinkedIn and VK:
https://github.com/danielkillyevo/OwinContrib.Security.LinkedIn
https://katanaproject.codeplex.com/SourceControl/network/forks/omankit/KatanaVK/contribution/5568

For now we're going to focus on items that are more difficult for the community to work on like WS-Fed.

That's good news, thanks.
Would you consider to include those contributions (or maybe only those ones which are the part of Katana source code) into the official release?

Depends on the quality and demand. We don't want to own and maintain everything. If the community can do it well then there's no need for us to get involved.
