Create Publishing profiles for SharePoint packages
I really like the new publishing options for web applications. As for SharePoint, the Package option seems to have been replaced by a Publish option. But that publish option could use some of the features the web application publishing has. For instance choosing a profile debug/release. It also doesn't rememeber the last directory where you've published your file in between session, so I need to choose the folder again each time. Overall, the publish feature is nice, but could be nicer.
Thanks for your feedback! We currrently support publishing profile for provider-hosted apps for SharePoint in SharePoint 2013, and we have an item on our backlog to support this for SharePoint solutions. Thanks for your idea!

Sandbox / farm solution option should be in the publishing profile as well. Handy for solutions which are reused in both farm based and office 365 based scenario's.
