I am proud to announce that version 0.1.2 of the jQuery Rambling Slider has been released!

It really has been out for a couple of days now, but I’ve had a couple of busy weeks. Nevertheless, I managed to do the major refactoring that I mentioned when version 0.1.1 was released. So, what have I added to this new release? Here’s the list:

  • Added the ability to call the stop and start methods from $('#slider').ramblingSlider('stop').
  • Added the foldLeft animation.
  • Refactored the build process, as the commands remain the same (cake build and cake minify)
  • Added the missing yuicompressor (oops…)
  • Reformatted the for loops to be more CoffeeScript-ish.
  • Added the first set of tests, along with a new command (cake spec) to run them. You can see how I am doing this.
  • Changed some if not to unless to be more CoffeeScript-ish.
  • Refactored (big time) the way the animations are being called.
  • Refactored the plugin construction.
  • Eliminated as much duplication as possible.
  • Fixed some issues with the caption and the previous and next buttons.

As you can see, it was a big refactoring and some tweaks.

The 0.1.2 version is by far the most stable release. You can download it from GitHub, see the tags, or browse the code.

Next up, allowing to add specify animations and adding more documentation on the wiki.

If you find any issues, drop a comment or add an issue on GitHub.

Enjoy! :D
