Subject Re: s5 plugin getting started
Date Tue, 08 May 2007 13:21:46 GMT
I created the s5 plugin some time ago for a specific purpose, but was
unable to release it due to licence incompatabilities. I have since
rewritten it using the licence compatible slidy. However, time has not
allowed me to package this as a releasable plugin. It is on my todo

I think it is best to consider the s5 plugin unsupported and
deprecated in favour of the slidy plugin, I'll do my best to get this
in SVN by the end of the day, but if I don't make it iI'm afraid it
will not be until the end of the week as I am in meetings throughout
this week.
