All 15 on the same project or on different projects ?
Anyway here is a list of things I think would be nice if they where
-Gnash enhancement as someone mentioned
-Read activity should be able to handle big (>20M) pdf without problems
-Read activity should bookmark where you are at when quiting
-Read activity annotations
-A email activity
