I will be removing the slider plugin from the repo towards the end of February 2013.
A little background...
Some time ago it was created using Orbit Slider from Zurb. Several weeks after I first released the WordPress plugin version, Zurb announced they were no longer supporting the stand-alone version and since bundled it with the (excellent) Foundation framework.
I've followed the progress and the slider does feel locked into the framework. Also, what started out as a lightweight slider script is getting bigger and bigger.
There are plenty of good alternatives coming out every week. I would suggest searching Responsive Slider in the repo or try Flexslider from Woo.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
I can confirm the plugin continues to work on WP 3.5 so you should be fine for now.
You are more than welcome to take the existing code and continue its development. Essentially, its just a custom-post-type, taxonomies and a jQuery slider script.
