Release Notes

Slide.Show is an open source Silverlight control for publishing highly-customizable photo slideshows on the Web.

In a hurry to upgrade?
...then download the SlideShowReleaseScripts-1.2.zip file for the minimum files needed to upgrade your existing Slide.Show slideshows.

Want it all?
...then download the SlideShowSource-1.2.zip file for complete source code, samples, and documentation.

Please note that although this release is 100% compatible with Silverlight 2, Slide.Show was originally written in javascript for Silverlight 1.0 and does not provide a XAP file for deployment. Stay tuned, however, for the forthcoming release of Slide.Show 2 for Silverlight 2 written entirely in managed code and with many cool new features!

What's New?

  • Fixes for compatibility with Silverlight 2 and Firefox 3
  • Improvements to existing samples plus new "Memorabilia" sample
  • FlickrDataProvider enhancements (i.e. getPublicPhotos)

Features

  • Minimal setup and configuration
  • Resizable for any Web page design
  • Full-screen and embedded modes
  • 100% configurable via XML or your own custom provider
  • Slideshow data from XML, Flickr, or your own custom provider
  • Auto-playback with numerous transitions (e.g. fade, shape, slide, wipe)
  • Cross-browser (e.g. IE 6/7/8, Firefox 2/3, Safari 2/3, PC and Mac)
  • Supports Silverlight 1.0 and Silverlight 2
  • Open source (e.g. extensible controls, configuration and data provider models, commented code)

Samples

To get started immediately, we recommend that you browse the samples that accompany the source code, including:
  • Empty - minimal, empty Slide.Show control
  • Flickr - retrieves slideshow data directly from Flickr
  • Memorabilia - stylized slideshow from the makers of http://memorabilia.hardrock.com
  • Multiple - multiple Slide.Show controls on a single page
  • Popup - opens a slideshow in a stretchy window
  • Resizable - resizes a Slide.Show control dynamically via script
  • Simple - no nonsense, no navigation slideshow
  • Tall - vertical layout with custom navigation and album buttons
  • Theater - fluid layout with dark theme
  • Vertigo - fixed layout with light theme
  • Windowless - transparent, floating Slide.Show control (perfect for annoying ads!)

I'm looking at the demo, and am fairly happy so far. Although I need to investigate more, I wanted to also state that this works on Linux/Firefox 2/Novel Moonlight (on this site: http://www.vertigo.com/slideshow.aspx), although not 100% because the fade transitions don't work--probably due to the Moonlight implementation.
