Add-on Best Home Page solution?

Hi Everyone ,

I have been looking over options for awhile now.

At first I wanted to incorporate a WordPress platform and have my new forum within it.
After seeing what was involved , I decided against it.

Basically the goal is a XF forum encased in a "WP like hompage" complete with a storefront solution within the site.

I have kind of leaned towards xenporta 2 but I think it may just be a temporary solution.

Any ideas out there for a good home page with customizable widgets?
Any ideas if XF 2.0 will incorporate more of a homepage type feature?
