Dojo-powered carousel plugin for WordPress. Initially started out as a modification of XEN Carousel, but I made so many edits (and switched JS backend to Dojo) that no code of the original plugin remains.
Showcase images on the front of your site, with arbitrary links
Dojo powered (all other WP plugins seem to be JQuery-based)
Graceful fallback behavior (if JS is not enabled then static first image w/ link is still visible)
Navigation for quick jumping (ala Steam showcase)
In its current state, integration requires some measure of manual setup. Please be patient (and submit requests) as later updates will bring smoother install.
Please see http://bitbucket.org/sirpengi/zen-carousel/ for latest code, reporting bugs or requesting features.

- Carousel Setup
The setup uses the following line format:
<Image url> <Link to> <Title> <Image url> is the url (absolute or relative) to the image <Link to> is the url that clicking this photo will lead to. <Title> for accessibility, shows up as tooltip for image/link
Separate each value with a space. The code only splits into three parts so spaces in the ‘Title’ are allowed.
