Filter by.... and a few other features

I've installed the new Lightroom CC and so far I'm pretty impressed.  It's finally *fast* which is amazing. 
But there are few features, some of the really simple ones, that are missing.
Why aren't file type, focal length and aperture, to name just three, available as filter options?  There's so much empty space to the right of the Locations filter you could easily fit them in.  Or make them removable the way the columns are in Classic.  I can't even search for *.jpg to find all of that file type!!!

Other things missing that ought to be included are:
The ability to choose multiple local storage options.  I keep recent photos on my local SSD and older ones are stored on my NAS.  I want to keep a copy of all files locally, but with a minority on my SSD and the majority off on the NAS.  

Also, why can't we go to full screen mode by hitting Shift+F?

Lastly, auto-setting white-point, black-point, shadows and highlights just to the edge of clipping - you used to be able to shift-double-click to get that but no longer?  Can you bring that back please?

It's only the 1.0 Release and I read they intend to add many more features.

Add them as a Idea 'feature request' James.

Try .jpg instead

I agree with Selondon, post all of these requests as separate ideas, because then other people can vote on your requests too. The team are looking for the most popular requests, so the voting system really helps.
