Buy the book, bring it for signing
Drush console uses phpsh and some extra magic to give you a REPL environment much closer to Scala, Ruby or Python with Drupal.
Lots of great tools, autocomplete syntaxes etc, for people who live on the command line
(also part of zroger's drush-toolbox)
Feather is a Drush script for managing and running an Apache http server in a development environment with minimal configuration. Feather maintains an isolated set of Apache configuration files, optimized to run a minimal httpd server. These configuration files are completely managed by Feather, so gone are the days of manually setting up virtual hosts for every new development site.
All the benefits of LESS and much more: CSS Libraries and compiled SCSS
I strongly advise using Compass + SCSS, it is the future of CSS
Drawbacks - there is no "converter" to turn existing CSS stylesheets intop SCSS - you have to start from scratch
Also the Omega theme is SCSS aware and “responsive” meaning it scales for various viewports down to mobile screen size
Zemanta is a content creation dashboard on steroids and recommends related material from your site and selected external resources to add (images, blog posts etc)
All the features I created for The Writers Network workflow last year – using Views, Workflow, Panels modules, and lots of custom code, in Drupal 6 - Workbench is for Drupal 7
Drawbacks – Workbench DOES NOT leverage these common modules, and therefore has no export settings (or Features) support – every installation must be configured from the web admin
