I'm busy writing documentation for the new features and updating the manual, but here's the list of changes in these updates.

Changelog:

Major additions:
- Added ability to create a self-running slide show without audio (Soundslides Plus only)
- Added loop Template option
- HTML tags in captions are now supported
    - tags available (a, b, br, i, u, font)
- Added ability to input the exact time for the slide's "in point" - via the Slide Info tab.

Minor changes:
- "Caption" tab renamed "Details", as tab contains more than just caption info
- New advanced parameters (documentation coming for these parameters)
    - Added ability to trigger a javascript call on each image view
    - extra_link, extra_link_text
    - Added ability to customize colors of thumbnail menu via advanced parameters

        - control_interior_hex, control_exterior_hex, control_loading_hex
- Updated all shells to include new export features
- Improvement of buffering for click-through image (Soundslides Plus only)
- XML control file format now output as default
    - Older TXT format still produced for legacy components and players
- Mac: Fixed an issue with the Video plug-in where the plug-in would launch an "Where is" error after export (mainly affecting Leopard)
- Mac: Fixed an issue where the "Slide movement" menu item was displayed even when that feature was not available

Re: Released: Soundslides Plus 1.2 & Soundslides 1.8 development releases

I've corrected two minor bugs the previous Soundslides Plus 1.2 and Soundslides 1.8 releases.

We're now at release 658.

[fixed] Corrected an issue in the player where it was possible for the volume control to display on non-audio slide shows if a shell or settings file was utilized.
[fixed] Fixed a bug seen with image width above 1000 pixels

Fresh download links are on the front of the site now.
