Exposure 1.0 is live!

After a long long wait I’m now pround to announce that Exposure 1.0 finally is release ready!

Exposure 1.0 contains the following updates and bug fixes:

  • Multiple gallerier per page – The most asked for feature! You are now able to run multiple Exposure instances on a single page.
  • Significant API changes – In order to cater for the support for multiple galleries I had to rewrite large parts of the plugin. This also means that several parts of the API has been changed. Take a look at the updated Documentation and Demos to get an idea of how this affects your galleries. Some of the changes includes:
    • Public function currentPage has been renamed currentPageNumber
    • Public function currentPage has been renamed currentPageNumber
    • Callback option onEmpty now takes a “gallery” parameter
    • You can reference some of the important elements (target element, wrapper element etc.) through a reference to your “gallery” element
    • Important selector classes are now stored as constants in the new static exposure object
  • Better demos – All demos have been updated to use the new API. The demos are now also linked to each other so that you can browse between them more easily. Demo 5 has been updated to show examples on how to display captions below images, how to implement an image counter and how to add additional content to your images.
  • New demos – Demo 7 shows how to use the new multiple galleries per page features and Demo 8 shows how to create a gallery where the images are centered both vertically and horizontally.
  • Czech translation added – Big thanks to Martin!
  • Simplified Chinese translation added – Big thanks to NaziCP!
  • Arabic translation added – Big thanks to Muhammad!
  • Better support for hover effects – Hover effects, like the sliding caption panel, are easier to implement thanks to the two new callback options onImageHoverOver and onImageHoverOut
  • New public function – imageHasData() lets you check if the currently displayed image also has any data (caption or additional data) up for display
  • jQuery 1.6.4 – Exposure is now bundled with jQuery 1.6.4
  • Reduced footprint – The size of the minfied version of Exposure has been reduced.

Exposure 1.0 is tested to work with Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer (8+ is supported, 6 and 7 still works but is not actively supported).

Beta

Exposure 1.0 is now Beta!

Yes it’s true! I finally got around to completing the last few remaining parts of the 1.0 Beta. The main new feature is of course the ability to include several Exposure galleries per page (the by far most requested feature)! This feature required a major rewrite of the plugin which has brought some big changes to the API. All the demos in the Beta package have been updated to reflect these changes, and I’ve also added a new seventh demo showing the new multiple albums feature. I will update the Docs as soon as possible, in the meantime I hope that the demos will help guide you, and if you have any questions you can always post them here.

Please download the new 1.0 Beta release and help me test it. All feedback and bug reports are helpful!

Just posting to let you know that I’m still here. I’m currently working on the 1.0 version of Exposure, which will include support for the most asked for feature – multiple galleries per page! The 1.0 version will be a major rewrite of the plugin, which is why it’s taking so long. As soon as I have a beta version for you to try I will post it here.
