There was a bit of nomenclature confusion in my mind regarding this plugin. I blame Boostrap, simply because you were only following their convention... What I came looking for was a carousel and what I got was a slider.
This is a bit pedantic, but a carousel typically refers to the rotation of multiple objects (in this case, I wanted to show an array of featured images with captions) that get cycled through, a few at a time. A slider, on the other hand, usually refers to the replacement of a single image/post by another.
Regardless, your plugin works quite nicely and I think I do like it better than the Genesis Responsive Slider.
You wouldn't happen to have any inclination toward creating a Genesis featured image carousel that shows multiple featured posts/images from posts and/or pages, would you?
