I have been using Latest News Enhanced for a few years now. We use it at a State University for most of our department websites. We use it to display news and our people pages. This is the best tool when you want a category blog view, but you want control over what is displayed. We use it to display custom fields, include links on images, links to a custom field such as an external website instead of the article, and even changing the title to display a custom field (instead of the set title). This has given us a tremendous amount of flexibility for our websites. We also use it as a module on home / landing pages to display just a few articles at a time, in a horizontal and scrolling format.
Thank you so much for building such an intuitive tool! I highly recommend it!
