It looks too weird, like a built-in website into another. I don't
believe it is supposed to be something like that. Instead of using the
sort-of banner to link to other pages like news, put them inside a
grey div block just like the one inthe documentation page, then it
might look less fake-integrated. And keep the documentation link at
the top of the page in the black banner in bold.

Very nice! Although the screenshot in the features page is overlapping
on the second column.

It works fine with chrome when i print a test page (to a file).
However it is not using the full width of the page[1].

Here are my personal remarks:
- the banner... I liked more space between the logo and the text; and
I liked another font better, this one has small curves around r and h.
- the grey background needs a change, either a vertical gradient from
white to grey, or keep the monotone colour but lighter/close to white.
