        • Built-in Integration with Social Networks

          The hability to add social media buttons like Facebook's like or Twitt Me's on articles. It's mainly because there are several ones but none that allow full customization without gettin' into PHP code, and that's simply not Joomla!

                • RESTful API for Joomla!

                  Wouldn't it be great to add the RESTful API and move away from XML-RPC?

                  - Each method along with its own URL.
                  - CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) functions.
                  - Output: JSON, XML, etc.

                        • Multiple Authors of a Single Article

                          It would be really cool if a article had the possibility of having multiple authors. I've searched all through the forums which many seem to be in support of this. Perhaps either a button "Add Another Author", or a simple comma to separate the usernames on the Article Owner list. This would make it so another user (author) could edit the article as well. This would then change the need to make all my users a editor which increases the security of people's content if this feature was added. And for those who do not want multiple authors for there…

                                  • Joomla Enterprise!

                                    It seems that most of the wishes are expanding Joomla too much. I suggest building a Joomla Enterprise Distribution which has all the additonal features helping Joomla to be an Enterprise CMS.
                                    The distribution as it is now should be left that thin. The enterprise version should have all the extension (e.g. extended ACL, CCK etc. ) which are needed to be blow away concurrent CMS like Typo3 or Drupal.

                                      • Meta data automatically generated for articles

                                        Social networking sites such as Facebook rely on the Meta Description for feed posts. It would be helpful of these fields could be filled out automatically so authors don't have to copy and paste a snippet of an article.
