v0.8

  • Introduction of Slideshow v2: principal improvement is the ability to fade in and out image titles when the user moves the cursor over the image.
  • Simplified method for specifying dimensions: set the width and height directly, and RSSPhoto will automatically general thumbnails without distortion from incorrect aspect ratio.
