Back-End Localization SBE
Kalina - Having backend localization in SBE is in the plans for Q1 (ending in March).
Missing is also Polls, Wiki modules.
The search for example is going to appear in the official release. We will progressively add the rest of the missing features - they are not forbidden for sure.
I agree for the Wikis as well.
The external pages will make it to the next release - Q1. The Polls module will be most probably based on the Forms module with some Analytics in the backend. We are still thinking how it should be implemented.
We still do not have a time frame for them, but we might be able to do it by the end of the year. Otherwise, you may incorporate some Reporting solution with the Forms module.
Please refer to my previous reply in this forum thread.
