Version 2.2 55.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0a8

* fixed: stylesheets applying to media 'screen' and not 'projection' or 'all' were not disabled entering the projection mode.
* new: it's now possible to insert a slide counter and the total of slides in your slides.
* please see the online doc [1] to learn more about this release.


Version 2.1 53.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0a7

- a click anywhere in a slide does not move to next slide/step any more
- the slideshow icon in the statusbar is gone
- a joystick appears in the right-bottom corner of slides when hovered and allows to move to previous or next slide/step, move back to the first slide, move to the last slide, toggle on and off the slide manager, and finally leave the fullscreen mode.
- this last thingy, allowing to leave the fullscreen mode, will also be reachable in the normal fullscreen mode when the document is not a slideshow. This is tremendously important for instance in the case of documents containing only a flash object taking 100% of the width AND the height of the viewport. In that cas, flash capturing all mouse and keyboard events, leaving the fullscreen mode was impossible !
- slide manager changes:
* left and up arrows, and page up move to previous thumbnail
* right and down arrow, and page down move to next thumbnail
* home key moves to first thumbnail
* end key moves to the last one
* CR and spaces keys select slide corresponding to the current thumbnail
* shift-F11 and ESC close the slide manager
- preferences browser.fullerscreen.* changed to extensions.fullerscreen.*. This means you may have to set your fullerscreen options again if they are different from the default behaviour.
- as usual, see the test/doc document to get more information about FullerScreen.
