Since the AnythingSlider has been on GitHub, a number of people have pushed the project forward. Big props to ProLoser, Mottie, meancode, betzster, and kalasoft for committing code to make it more feature rich, smarter, and more optimized.
Mottie's fork is the furthest along so I'll link the download button below to that. There has been lots of changes since last time we talked about this project around here. For example: multiple sliders on the page (while retaining ability to link to slides on either with #hash links), morphs size to fit uniquely sized slides, reversing the direction of the slider, and many more behavior options.
