Id love to have a channel specific search - so that you can click a channel, then in the search bar type a string and search all f the channels backlog. also with an advanced feature so you can limit times and dates etc.

Yes, that is definitely planned.

This is actually a request for server-side search? I.e. entering a search term in the client should make the server search in the complete backlog for the phrase, opposed to the current behaviour where the client only searches in that part of the backlog it received already?

I have a working early version of such a thing. Probably good enough to hand it out for eager testers soon.
As this is a pretty invasive endeavor (i'm at 57 files changed, 1201 insertions(+), 65 deletions(-)), it will take some time for polishing and testing.
And probably way more (if ever) until it hits upstream.
If anyone is interested in playing/helping with that, hit me up on irc or here.

As stated by project lead, "quassel-ng" will be radically different and such work should be postponed until then.
