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 file for the minimum files needed to upgrade your existing Slide.Show slideshows.

Want it all?
...then download the 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!

  • 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

  • Cross-browser (e.g. IE 6/7/8, Firefox 2/3, Safari 2/3, PC and Mac)
  • Supports Silverlight 1.0 and Silverlight 2

Wonderful applications

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:, although not 100% because the fade transitions don't work--probably due to the Moonlight implementation.
