Add a widget which enables us to easily display posts in various forms/layouts on the homepage/sidebars:
1 column, 2 column, small/medium/large thumbnail, post list below big thumbnail, offset option, sort/order by settings etc.
The "Genesis Featured Posts widget Amplified" (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-featured-widget-amplified/) is a great example for such a widget.

I completely agree with this idea.
I think when this plugin is used with the Woo Sidebars plugin it would
be very powerful.
The title should be "Advanced Featured Posts Widget"...
