Since I'm not a programmer, I have tried just about every plugin (and combination of plugins) to support the management and presentation of custom post types, taxonomies, and fields — just do a search through the forums for my name and custom post types — and, at least for the moment, I've found that WP-Types & Views has met my needs. 


Always interested in the observations of this august body. Also, here's some detail in how we used it on a project last year.
