I am no longer experiencing that problem, no.
However, the upgrade seems to have an interesting side effect of crunching my images down to a small thumbnail size. It really isn't a huge deal for me because I'm still developing locally and haven't pushed anything live yet. I'm able to add new images and they come up at the right size no problem. Other users using the existing plugin might have issues upgrading, though.
Another thing I noticed as a side effect of the upgrade was that when the slideshow cycles around to the beginning again, the last slide stays on the screen and the first slide is overlaid on top of it, rather than having it fading out, like the others. I don't know if that's just so it can look seemless or not, but that's just something I noticed. Once my images are resized, though, it won't be an issue.
Otherwise, it's working just like I hoped. A simple slideshow with a caption without all the other garbage that so many other plugins try to push on you. Keep up the good work!
