You can expect many reviews of Dev4Press plugins and themes being posted here in near future. Our website use most of them.
You've probably noticed a theme switcher widget on the right sidebar. Among choices, beside our original iNove theme, you'll find themes based on advanced xScape framework from Dev4Press. Right now two of them are available ( baseScape and eScape ) with more to follow as they become available.

Recently I found Delink Pages 1.0 plugin by Jennifer Stuart. It promises something I was looking for:
