    Hi there, could you have a look?

    http://bit.ly/wetgmX

    And is it fixable?

    It just started, my change rate interval is set at 4 seconds, and right after it passes you see a flicker right? And its only in chrome, maybe it has something to do with their latest update?

    Thanks

    Hi! I don't notice the "flicker", however it has been reported by someone else too today, and I have an idea what may be causing this. I'll try and get this sorted ASAP.

    Hi! I've pushed 1.0.25 out, which should address the problem you're experiencing. Let me know if this fixed it for you.

    hmm, no.. not fixed, here.. HOWEVER, I tested on several other pc's, and strangely enough there is not flicker? So I think it has to do with a Chrome plugin or something else on my pc.

    I will mark this as solved :D

    Another user had reported this, but that it's now fixed in Firefox, but still occurs in Chrome. So I hope to be able to reproduce the problem. Is it Chrome for Windows you're using? And what version?

    Hi!

    I have made some additional changes to the Javascript that performs these image transitioning, which I hope will address the issue. These changes will be available with the next release.

    Thanks for reporting and letting me know what version of Chrome you're using :)

    Hi!

    Just a heads up, version 1.1 has been released today and should fix the "flicker" issue. You may wish to read the post about the changes before you upgrade.
