What features would you like to see in future versions of Joomla?

Version filtering

When searching the Extensions Directory, I hope that I could filter the search when looking for extensions for 1.6 version only or 1.5 version only or whether the extension supports all version.

        NO need to wish for this it already exists. You can search by supported version(Joomla! 1.6 is compatible with 2.5) using advanced search and in the Joomla! 1.5 archive you can also search by supported version using advanced search.

        The extension directory is a mess, but I don't know myself how it could be organized to save time needed for searching. Help!

        Every version number should be a checkbox - so for instance someone can search for ONLY 1.6 and 1.7 compatible extensions, ONLY 2.5 compatible, etc. Quite honestly there are many people who shouldn't have to go through the myriad 1.5 Native extensions, when they have never and will never care about 1.5....

        I agree with other comment that ability to filter on Javascript Framework requirement would be a plus. However of course Joomla version compatibility is of the utmost importance.

        Nice to see this being worked on, I would also like to see more filters in JED. For instance filter by the javascript usage of an extension (none, regular js, mootools, jQuery, ext.js etc)
