The next version will contain some "expose" like features. If you don't know what expose is, head over to http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/expose/. Basically, it gives you a quick look at all of your windows by laying them out in such a way that causes them not to overlap. Then, you can simply click on the one you want and it activates it. There are a couple Expose features. What types of features does anyone have, specifically. For example, there will definitely be a "see all windows" function. Do the other features such as "see all window in a particular app" seem as useful? What other types of features do you want?

Switcher has a pretty nice expose-like effect (http://insentient.net/index.html). I suppose that it could be useful to have the expose feature for each desktop in the desktop preview. That way it would be even easier to shift a window from one desktop to another.

What expose has (which is really useful) is:

F9 means see all windows.
F10 means see all windows of a particular application.
F11 means clear everything and see the desktop (ala Win + D)

Also, you can use the arrow keys to navigate around and press the same key to selct a window (aka use F9 to organize windows, navigate to one, press F9 again to select).

Those would be great features to add!
