Hiding purchases in the App Store/iTunes Store Apps
It looks like you can finally hide purchases from the the App Store (and the iTunes store).

This may have been mentioned somewhere before, but I haven't seen it.

If you open iTunes and go to the iTunes store and click on 'purchased,' you'll get your list of purchases. From here, if you mouseover a particular purchase (movie, tv show, app), you'll see a little X in the top left corner. If you click on the X, you'll see a message: 'Are you sure you want to hide this purchase? You can unhide purchases from your Account Information page.'

Click the X and the purchase is now hidden on all your Apple devices.

[crarko adds: I don't know how new this is, but I'd not noticed it before either. Handy to know for things like the MLB app that have a new version each year.]

Hiding purchases in the App Store/iTunes Store

Mac App Store has almost the same thing now, although not with confirmation, nor unhiding. But previously there was no way to remove apps from the Purchased tab.

Actually there is "unhiding" in Mac App Store look in menu Store/Account, just like iTunes

That's helpful - thanks! I noticed that in iTunes the other day, where it says I have one hidden item but nothing's listed under View Hidden Purchases.

App Store should have a confirmation before hiding since it's relatively easy to accidentally click the circled 'X'. Or, or at least display some help text when hovering over the 'X' describing its purpose.
