Improvements in CMS6 R2 – not only new features

A number of new features have been announced being part of the upcoming CMS 6 R2 release. Apart from features you will also be able to enjoy a whole lot of fixed bugs. We continuously work on fixing issues in existing functionality i.e. issues that are reported by the community and issues that we find internally. Currently the bugs that will have a cure in the R2 release sum up to 273. A lot of those (223) are also part of the CMS6 R2 Beta release that was made available for the public just before Christmas. Take a look at the bug list to see which bugs have been fixed in the Beta. If there are issues that you know about that can’t be found in bug list we want to know about it as soon as possible to be able to resolve it before shipping CMS 6 R2.

On a slightly different note, if you're still making code changes, how bout adding IDataFactory and letting DataFactory implement that? If that's the only change you make (ie you don't use IDataFactory internally) you wont break binary compatibility and make quite a few people oh so happy ;)

I haven't had a chance to check out R2 yet so if this is already implemented please disregard this.

I'd like the ability to create my own MVC controller factory for IoC-container reasons.
