Todd (What Do I Know) has done a lot of work on his open source Flash slideshow since I reported on it 1/2 a year ago. It has been released in a “regular version”, and is to be released as a “pro” version with more capabilities soon.
Lets hear what Todd has to say about it:
I rebuilt the original code as an ActionScript 2 class, and compiled a drag-and-drop component named (originally) SlideShow. It has all the features of the first version: dynamic image loading, cross-fading, etc. but is now much easier to use. Just drag SlideShow to the stage, tweak the options however you like, and publish. And like the first go-round, it’s free.
