A new beta version is available for download.
If you use the "thumbnails slider" you can try it :) it's using jquery cycle instead of jquery UI, it's easier to style with CSS and you can change transitions by editing libs/slidercfg.js
line 5 : fx : 'fade'
change fade by blindX for example :).
See http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/browser.html for more effects.
Please post here what you want on the new version and please reports bugs here too.
C ya !
