I've been looking for something like this for a while. I used a similar plugin like this some time ago, but wasn't completely happy with the development. This one is as simple and straight forward as it gets. Kudos.

Does what it says it will do. You create your glossary entries and it does the rest. I like that it defines a custom post type so that you can create a full page of glossary entries by filtering on the type. Only thing keeping it from being 5-stars is the absolute lack of customization options, but it's open source, and free, so that's definitely not a functional flaw. Nice plugin, folks. Thanks!
