I'm not one to dabble in the "comments' section of anything - but I'll chip in my 2 cents on this one...
The plugin plays very well with his little jquery neighbors - which is a relief.
It's got a smooth transition - which is a rarity compared to others (including that "Nivo Slider" which has always given me fits).
The author(s) let me hack at the code for my own personal nuance, which is very nice! e.g. "I want this slideshow to have these specific attributes and those slideshows to have their own..."
Finally, the set-up is a freaking snap! Plug it in... go play your little hearts out and have a ball. I didn't have to scratch my head and sift through abstract help-files and long-ignored help requests in the forums. Nope - just plug it in and have fun. Period.
To the smart-people/person who wrote this plugin-in: "Thank you!" I'd give you a 6th Star but these "WordPress Forum Communists" wouldn't let me. ;-)
