Some guys ask me to integrate support for custom fields added to tt_news by third party extensions. Therefor a hole new configuration method must be developed, including the field validation. The Integration of this feature will change the actual rendering and validation process radically.
Maybe there are some people out there, which await this feature and would sponsor its implementation, so I could start an offical project at my TYPO3 agency. I don't think that I'm able to implement all the upcomming features and new wishes only in the small timeframe of my spare time - or in other words: Sponsoring some feature would boost the development massive!
