Thank you very much for submitting your features request.
I want to assure you that most of the features are already planned to be implemented. The Forums module is going to be migrated to Generic Content architecture. This will make it very flexible and easy to extend.
I have some comments on your request though:
Generic content control HTML editor should be resizable: The window is now very small making it difficult to edit larger HTML segments.
Please try pressing F11. This should resize the editor to full screen dimensions.
Generic content HTML editor throws out certain HTML, including script tags. Also, the GUI editor is generally a little "flaky".
You may want to implement different ContentFilters for the RadEditor. These filters are intended to work with the content you create. Please refer to the RadEditor's Developers Manual for more information.
"Latest news" control to display news titles in compact form (ie for home page)
It is possible to tweak the NewsView control in such a way. It should show only the first couple of words, and the latest 5 news articles for example. You may control which items to be showed, for example Title and Summary only. Nevertheless, I understand what your point is - a separate control especially for that purpose.
Overall performance on the admin system is slow.
We are constantly working on this. You should see improvements in version 3.5SP1, and 3.6 beta (coming out in a few days).
Thank you once again for your request.
All the best,
the Telerik team
