Read the list, many of these have already been discussed:

Known issue. Systray doesn´t support old way to add icons. Read list.

> - No printer manager

Experimental has one that is installable.

No idea. Do not use PulseAudio.

Basic screen blanker with powerdevil package.

kscreensaver is not supported anymore. See blog from kwin developer Martin 
Graesslin for details.

Is in system-settings Desktop/Search (roughly translated from german) (also 
accessible from krunner itself).

Baloo settings are also available there. Only basic kcm working currently 
and so you can only exclude directories.

No idea yet.

Agreed. Widget placement is a lot tricker than with KDE SC 4. I consider 
filing upstream bugs about some of these issues.
