Version 0.3.0 of the jQuery Rambling Slider is out! Well… it’s been out for a while now (a couple of weeks), but I haven’t had the time to write the post for it :/. You can download it from GitHub.

Basically added a lot of tests and some transitions. I also removed and/or changed some of the transitions, so I will be updating the documentation soon (wiki). This release includes these features and fixes:

  • Changed file combining order logic.
  • Migrated the styles to Sassy stylesheets.
  • Tweaked theme method to change it for all containers as well.
  • Fixed glitch on image to flash transitions.
  • Fixed 'this' is not a function issue for flash transitions.
  • Fixed slider already initialized not thrown when no options passed. Refactored.
  • Added tests for the animateBoxesIn2d helper function.
  • Refactored the cake tasks.
  • Removed the boxRandom, same as boxRainRandom transition.
  • Fixed boxRain and boxGrow transition groups, added the Forward suffix.
  • Renamed and refactored the boxRainGrow to boxGrow. Added the boxRainRandom and boxGrowRandom transitions.
  • Added tests for boxRandom, boxRain, boxRainReverse, boxRainOutIn, boxRainInOut, boxRainGrow, boxRainGrowReverse, boxRainGrowOutIn and boxRainGrowInOut transitions.
  • Fixed bug with transition group names.
  • Added tests for fadeIn, fadeOut, rolloverLeft, rolloverRight, slideInLeft and slideInRight transitions.
  • Added slider and settings to the animation set up callback.
  • Added tests for sliceDown, sliceUp, sliceUpDown, sliceFade and fold transitions.
  • Added the sliceFadeRight, sliceFadeLeft and sliceFadeRandom transitions.
  • Fixed the build files combining order.
  • Added the sortInOut jQuery function, and specs.
  • Added the transitionGroups and transitionGroupSuffixes options.
  • Added the fadeBoxes helper function.
  • Changed build utils file sort function log messages.
  • Moved the transitions into own file, using the transition extensibility.

Still pending: Integrating SASS compilation to CSS into the build process, new themes and examples as well as some other tests. Though it’s definitely becoming more stable as time passes, code is refactored and tests are added.
