proper and out-of-the-box social capability
All most all CMS are now getting a "social" blend in the sense that they come with a social profile enabled or capability to do social networking. Will Silverstripe please,please quickly support an extension/module/plugin like http://buddypress.org ? This will essentially mean profile commenting+granular privacy+Social Apps/Gadgets+activity stream all integrated to one another.
easy and custom content types
How easily one can add own content types from the administrative interface?
Have a look at these
Wordpress - http://pods.uproot.us/ or Drupal - http://drupal.org/project/cck
A front end to manage and display the database query results for the same (like Drupal Views) would be not just cool but actually useful.
Have there been already feature requests for the above? If so, where can I join to add my voice ?
Thanks for this wonderful CMS.
