I released Meteor Slide 1.5.3 yesterday. This update has some minor stylesheet tweaks to fix conflicts with the new default theme, TwentyFifteen, as well as some other common theme issues. Meteor Slides 1.5.3 also includes a new Norwegian translation and updated Swedish translation.
I just released Meteor Slide 1.5.2, a plugin update which includes a new Slides icon and other styling adjustments to match the admin in WordPress 4.0. This update also includes some new and updated translations, bringing the total number of translations up to twenty-five!
Meteor Slides 1.5 adds responsive slideshow support, touch navigation, an improved slideshow widget, new translations, and updates jQuery Cycle.
I have been building more responsive websites lately and receiving more and more requests from users for responsive slideshows, so I have updated the slideshows to scale automatically.
If you are using a fixed width theme the slideshows will remain unchanged at their original dimensions. But if you are using a fluid or responsive width theme those are used as the maximum dimensions and the slideshow will scale, shrinking to fit the theme on smaller screens and devices.
Any custom slideshow templates, stylesheets, or scripts you are using would have to be updated from the default versions in 1.5 to add this responsive functionality.
Meteor Slides 1.4 features a new slideshow design, support for the Members plugin, custom slideshow script support, and several new and updated translations.
Meteor Slides has been busy since version 1.3.3 was released. The number of downloads doubled to over 40,000 with nearly 80 ratings and many generous donors have also helped to keep my coffee cup full, thanks!
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.
