I've managed to get out a new release of the Feature Carousel. It includes some common feature requests such as next and previous control arrows. In fact, version 1.0 supported them in the code but I never actually utilized them in the HTML for demonstrating.
I've added a development roadmap for both carousels; it outlines what I have in mind for future releases. If you'd like to see a feature added to either of the carousels, go ahead an comment on the roadmap page to have it added. If it's not too crazy, I can probably work it in. A large request for the feature carousel is to be able to display more than one flanking "feature" story. I think most people assume it can be done, but doing so requires rewriting a lot of code. I'll get this out on version 1.2. For version 1.1, I'm focusing on several small bug fixes and browser compatibility.
I've just commited the v1.2 tag for the waterwheel carousel. You can download this version on GitHub; just select the Download button, and then the link for v1.2. This version includes a few improvements that have been bothering users and I alike for a while. Here is a short summary (I may have missed something...):
This has been a long time coming, but I finally relaunched this website. The old site has been taken down and will never be seen again... I originally threw it up in a few days just to showcase my two jQuery plug-ins. I had just about no experience using Drupal (or any other web framework for that matter) at the time that site went up and it was pretty poorly made. Now that I know what I'm doing with Drupal, the site was pretty easy to get up and going!
