This is the second entry in recapping my trip to Chicago for DrupalCon. On the opening night (Monday), a party was held at the Field Museum of Natural History. Beer, wine, and plenty of food was served as we were all free to roam around most of the building. The most impressive was certainly Sue, the world's most complete T-Rex fossil. Certainly worth checking out if you are end up in Chicago.
Hello all... I've just returned from my first DrupalCon this past week, and it was a great time & experience. It was also the first time I was on a commercial flight, but all went well. I've been developing sites in Drupal for about a year now and couldn't have been more excited to head to Chicago to check out the bi-annual conference. Chicago is certainly a beautiful city!
I've managed to get out a new release of the Feature Carousel. It includes some common feature requests such as next and previous control arrows. In fact, version 1.0 supported them in the code but I never actually utilized them in the HTML for demonstrating.
I've added a development roadmap for both carousels; it outlines what I have in mind for future releases. If you'd like to see a feature added to either of the carousels, go ahead an comment on the roadmap page to have it added. If it's not too crazy, I can probably work it in. A large request for the feature carousel is to be able to display more than one flanking "feature" story. I think most people assume it can be done, but doing so requires rewriting a lot of code. I'll get this out on version 1.2. For version 1.1, I'm focusing on several small bug fixes and browser compatibility.
I've just commited the v1.2 tag for the waterwheel carousel. You can download this version on GitHub; just select the Download button, and then the link for v1.2. This version includes a few improvements that have been bothering users and I alike for a while. Here is a short summary (I may have missed something...):
