Auto-Save for any new draft post will be very useful. I have experienced the same issue as Jayendran before. Would be great to avoid such mistakes!

I also really like the filter posts by draft/published in dashboard suggestion. Glad to see an update has been planned.

i18n, please! Most of the people from my community doesn't speak English at all, so having all UI elements translated is crucial.
