Fabrik
Fabrik is an extremely powerful addition to joomla that allows people who are not accomplished PHP programmers to develop their own component and module-like additions to any Joomla website.

My only gripe might be that the software is so extensive and regularly updated it's hard to keep up with what's been added, what's changed, and how to use it. Documentation is definitely a weakness!

On the other hand, even at the "Bronze" subscriber level the developers support and response has nearly always been top notch, far exceeding that given for software I've paid a lot more for.

Article-Generator
This component successfully pulls in articles from RSS feeds, however as others have noted it's lacking in documentation, with a number of back-end configuration settings that have no explanation. There also appears to be no easy way to change the way article intros are formatted, with a forced two column layout (image + text) that looks poor if there are no images in the feed.

JUMultiThumb
I was looking for a plugin to cleanup oversized images on my frontpage and in blog/article layouts and this does it great. Two things missing - I'd like to be able to easily tell it to not thumbnail ALL articles, just do if for the frontpage/blogs. It also would be great with an easy way to change the margins around the thumbnail. It may be their but I couldn't find it.

Good idea! In next version will be.

Please use classes "juleft" and "juright" for change margin in your css.

Look example:

.juleft{
float: left;
margin: 0 6px 6px 0;
}
.juright{
float: right;
margin: 0 0 6px 6px;
}
