slideshow.html was based on the HTML5 Slideshow project by Rob Flaherty. The code was extended and new features were added:
- The ruby script which offers support for partials and automated build
- Dimensions and proportional slide resizing according to a specified ratio (for example, 1280x800)
- Additional options (for example, hide the toolbar but keep the slide number visible)
- Live.js was added (browser automatic refresh)
- Less.js was added
