    • Provide way for ICommands to determine the UIElement which owns the command

      ICommands should have the ability, when executed, to determine which UIElement owns the command. Perhaps when event handlers are invoked, CallContext could be used to store the current UIElement 'sender'.

      • Fix XPS Document Writer Threadsafety

        If you try to submit an .xps document to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" printer using PrintQueue.AddJob(), but from a worker thread (not the application thread), it fails with an exception. I don't understand how that is even possible, but it's irritating to have to special case this one driver to print on the main app thread.

            Thank you for your feedback on this idea. We have reviewed this and we will not be able to complete this suggestion in the foreseeable future. A number of our partners like Telerik, Infragistics support a large number of customizable themes. Another option would be Open Source projects like MahApps who have great Metro style themes for WPF applications.

          • Improve Antialiasing

            The Antialiasing algorithm needs to be improved, especially for white on black text when not using cleartype where it displays both artifacts and oversaturated aliasing

            See this example: http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/514/textquality.png

                    • Make it easy to use WPF from C++

                      WPF is the most modern technology for creating GUIs Microsoft has to provide. Unluckily it is rather unpleasant to use from C++(/CLI) (at least a lot more unpleasant than C#).

                      So add C++/CLI as an additional first-class language for developing WPF applications.

                        • Make more WPF features work in partial trust

                          It would be great if more WPF features were available in partial trust like bitmap effects applied to my application UI, access to more than just the domain of origin.

                                      • port Silverlight themes to WPF

                                        It would be nice if some of the Silverlight themes like Accent and JetPack were officially ported to WPF 4 ... it will really help LoB developers without design skills develop decent-looking applications. By default, the DataGrid from WPF 4 under Aero looks like it's from Windows 3.1.

                                        • Add full BIDI support.

                                          Currently the text render ignores unicode control characters (such as Right To Left Override) which results in wrong textual display for Arabic and Hebrew languages
