The aim of NextCellent is to provide an alternative for traditional NextGEN users to keep their sites updated without breaking compatibility. Older subplugins will be also compatible (those which were compatible with version 1.9.13 or earlier).
Users who wants to stay working with older NextGEN version (1.9.13 or older) until they're confident enough to make the jump to newest 2.x.x version
Users wishing avoid NextGEN 2.x.x and beyond for the moment.
Site managers handling several sites using specialized software as InfiniteWP or ManageWP, wanting to keep their sites running with automatic updates.
Users prefering an alternative development path with backward compatibility.
Developers wanting to suggest or colaborate improving the code.
Backward compatibility with NextGEN plugin version (1.9.13)
Slow evolving code path, made only by NextGEN user's suggestions. Yep, you read it right: slow in counterpart as fast. Older code is good enough to keep a community and it worked (and works) for most people. Versions will rollup about once a month.
A reliable way to work with already installed NextGEN galleries.
A place for updating the plugin without using FTP manual updates, but WordPress plugin repository.
Alternative path preserving backward compatibility (while possible).
Development on Bitbucket open to developers suggestions. (https://bitbucket.org/wpgetready/nextcellent). You are free to download , test and make suggestions and request.
Being said that, here are the usual classic features:
NextCellent Gallery provides a powerful engine for uploading and managing galleries of images, with the ability to batch upload, import meta data, add/delete/rearrange/sort images, edit thumbnails, group galleries into albums, and more. It also provides two front-end display styles (slideshows and thumbnail galleries), both of which come with a wide array of options for controlling size, style, timing, transitions, controls, lightbox effects, and more.
NextGEN has been the dominant WordPress gallery plugin for years. Being said that, NextCellent will provide backward compatibility for NextGEN 1.9.13 and it will evolve according user requirements.
As a result, there is large and great community of users and developers, as well as a large number of dedicated extension plugins. For a list of extension plugins, just search for NextGEN in the WordPress.org plugin repository, or visit our Complete List of NextGEN Extension Plugins.
