Since you are planning to set a new set of standards for online content management solutions in Vivvo 4, I would like to see a major missing feature from most news publishing scripts: News Alerts.

on some major news sites the News section include a facility that enables visitors to register for alerts when new press releases or related news to certain topics are posted. at such times, they will receive an automatic email that tells them to visit the site to read the latest news, providing a link to the relevant page. this process once set by the site admin is automated and does not require human intervention. the admin just needs to fill the text in the email template body and insert special tags like {username}, {email}, {topic}, {url}....that will be populated by the script upon sending the alerts to all subscribers.

We plan to have "subscribe" option set for various topics, like "subscribe to comments", "subscribe to author", etc.
