First of all please accept my sincere aplogies for the inconvenience. I will try my best to address the issues highlighted by you individually.
However, before this I like to add that the issues solution for normal priority forum usually takes longer due to the fact that first priority is given to paid Enterprise support (ES) and then Priority support (PS) customer issues. The issues are investigated and scheduled for resolution first. But for both ES and PS the issues are queued for resolution based on thier complexity. After ES and PS issues, Aspose.Slides or normal forum support issues are considered for resolution. In normal forum support issues the issues are investigated on first come and first serve basis and then resolved on the basis of thier complexity. I shared the mechanism of issue selection and resolution with you so as to give you an idea about how we manage issues on our end.
Now, I will share the status of the shared issues with you.
This issue is blockked due to SLIDESNET-13419. The issue is responsible for unification of Aspose.Slides API for PPT and PPTX. At the moment, there are two separate namespaces for PPT and PPTX. This is one of the major changes in Aspose.Slides API and is likely to be resolved by Feb 2013 product release. Since, generating shapes thumbnails is availble for PPT presentations so after unification of API, the feature will also get automatically implemented for PPTX shapes or in next subsequent release.
I like to share that this issue has been resolved in Aspose.Slides for Java and I tested using Aspose.Slides for Java 6.9.0. I have shared the sample code for your kind reference over this link
as well. Actually, in SlideCollection
of PPT presentation, the slides are not necessarily in order they appear in PowerPoint presentation. For PPT, you need to access the slides by position as shared by me. If there is still an issue then please share your feedback with us in this regard.

This issue is a new feature request and is related to adding support for InvertIfNegative option for chart series data rendering. I like to share that this issue has been created in December 2012 and is at high priority for resolution as many other customers are awating this feature support. I have again emphasized our development team for the resolution of the issue.

This issue is related to missing slide text and background shapes in generated thumbnails.The issue has been resported over this link
. I have tested the presentation using Aspose.Slides for Java 6.9.0 and have generated the correct thumbnails which are shared in attached Slides_Fujitsu.zip
This issue is related to providing support for loading, saving, editing, and 2d-rendering SmartArt objects. I like to share that this issue is already logged as Priority Support issue. Once the before mentioned SLIDESNET-13419 will be resolved. The SmartArt rendering will be implemented in Aspose.Slides for .NET and subsequently ported to Aspose.Slides for Java in very next release. We are hopeful to provide this feature by end of Q1 of 2013.
