It would useful to be create rectangles, ovals and diamonds centered on points. This tool could be added to Processing.
Back in 2012 there was a plugin that performed this operation called "Rectangles, ovals and diamonds" that's no longer maintained. See:
I'm adding a backup of the plugin kept by Andre Joost from 2012 (see http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-user/2014-November/029679.html)

Note that "Rectangles, Ovals and Diamonds" plugin was/is not the same as "Rectangles, Ovals Digitizing" plugin. They just shared the same author.
The second one is still available for QGIS 2, the first one was available only for QGIS 1.x
The requested first one does buffering around a point layer in form of rectangles, ovals or diamonds based on attribute field values. The second one creates the shapes from 3 or more points.

"Rectangles, Ovals and Diamonds" plugin allowed the creation of rectangles, ovals and diamonds without digitizing. The user would use a point layer as input and then these geometric features would be created using data from the attribute table
Giovanni, please change the title of this feature request to: "Create rectangles, ovals and diamonds from points (not by digitizing)" so we can avoid confusion.
