I am not an expert on WordPress but I use it for my website. I love the ease of use and extent of its scalability.
What I believe would be good in any future release of WordPress is an integrated Image Gallery or SlideShow. What I am referring to is something like this one: http://www.nst.com.my. On the front page, if you look at the middle section, you will see an Image SlideShow with page navigation, captions, date and time.
It is a bane looking for the right plugin to do this and very frustrating to tweak CSS or codes for people who are like me - ordinary user who are not technologically smart enough to play with codes.
I hope the WordPress team will at least consider this suggestion.
