3.4 2017-01-04

[04/01/17] =

This is the first in a series of small updates which will eventually allow us to remove restrictions in the plugin which prevent us from implementing certain functionality, including:

  • Changing a slide image
  • Using unique captions when the same slide has been added to more than one slideshow
  • Adding the same slide to a slideshow multiple times
  • Duplicating slides and sliders
  • Drafting slides
  • Scheduling slides

We are releasing this update in a number of small stages due to the number of users Meta Slider has. We are being overly cautious to ensure it's a smooth transition. This update does not make any major changes to the current plugin functionality, but it does put in place the "scaffolding" code which we will rely on to implement further updates.
