Hi all,

since I hope your are going to schedule the new releases of pivotx I want to suggest a few (maybe) interesting features:
- sqlite support
- comments in page
- page review. My experience: I use to modify pages already published adding some text; however I haven't got the possibility (time, enthusiasm and so on) to finish the new part, so what I can do with the new updates? (1) save the updates but in this way the published page will contain some 'inconsistent' text. (2) hold the page but in this way I will lose for I while the whole published page, (3) cut and paste the update on my desktop and put it back in the page when they will be ready. Hence from my point of view a sort of 'state' is still missing in the pivotx system, I wondering in the possibility to let the user to modify a page, already published, and save the updates leaving the publish version as is.
- what you see what you get ! Some pages in the dashboard has different behaviours to save data. For instance int he user profile to save the modified field I need to click the save button while in the configuration page the fields are saved automatically when I click with the mouse in some other places.
- list all the extensions available in the extensions website and install them automatically whenever the user ask for one of them.
- update automatically the extensions when new versions are available
- backup all button; that save in one time: configuration, db, entry and themes (I want to do it automatically with a cron)
- entry/page editing: I cannot change the width of the textarea, Using FF with 1280x800 I have some 'white space' on the right but I cannot use it. Please lets the textarea to be able to fill the whole page removing the fixed width.

btw, the ones below are more close to be bugs than suggestions:
