In preparation for WordPress 3.1 which should be out any day now, I just released Meteor Slides 1.3.2. This version is still compatible with WordPress 3.0 and has been tested up through 3.1 Release Candidate 3.
Meteor Slide 1.3.2 has some updated functionality for WordPress 3.1, improves support for slideshows of different sizes, and now includes contextual help for all of the slideshow admin pages.
This plugin recently reached 17,000 downloads, and after 40 ratings, Meteor Slides is still holding onto five stars! Thanks everyone who has tried my plugin, rated it, and especially those who have been kind enough to donate. Seen a few cool implementations of Meteor Slides lately and I’d love to see more if you want to share a link.

Updating Custom Stylesheets and Templates
To fully support multiple slideshows of different sizes I had to make some changes to simplify the markup of the slideshow. This will not affect most users of Meteor Slides, but if you are using a custom stylesheet or slideshow template you will want to replace these with a fresh copy from 1.3.2 and update your changes.
Sorry for any inconvenience, but these changes should improve the flexibility and reliability of the slideshow. If you have any problems or questions please let me know.
Note: I had a generic function in 1.3.2 that was causing a conflict, Meteor Slides 1.3.3 resolves this issue.
