A new feature for SilverStripe should be ...

Apply versioning and draft/published to files

Right now, the draft/published system doesn't apply to files: any files that you upload are available straight-away, and file replacements can't be staged and tested.

For many people, this is acceptable as the draft/published system is kind of an optional, bonus feature. Others don't realise this limitation is there and are shocked when they find out. And for some people it makes using SilverStripe a non-starter.

Admittedly, this is generally only an issue to larger organisations, however, SilverStripe has always been designed to let web developers create more tailored systems, and so thinking about the needs of people who care about controlling the release of content would be in keeping with our general aims.
