v3.5.1 (01/27/2021)

  • Changed the "slide" animation to use margins instead of "translate(...)".
  • Fixing an animation issue in Chrome 88.


  • Improved page performance when enabling touch. But re-working how the events are registered

  • Removed nested sliders demo
  • Removed css effects demo


  • More touch fixing.


  • Fixed some subpixel precision problems in Firefox when rezizing and having multiple slides visible. 


  • v3.4.9


  • Fixing an issue where calling setOptions() or similar multiple times after another, caused problems with touch.


  • v3.4.6


  • Change in script: Added a the possibility of prefixing customLinks with ">", to have the links only work within the context of the slider.


  • Fixed issue in the Microsoft Edge browser, where it sometimes crashed.


  • Fixing touch in FireFox 

v3.4.1 (2015-03-31)

  • Change in script: Changed the default value of "mouseTouch" to true, meaning that if you enable touch, mouse-dragging also work pr. default.
  • Change in script. Added a "speed" argument in the end of beforeAnimation. Since the animation speed isn't always the option speed (e.g. touch animations).
  • Change in demos: Added the "partial sides" demo.
  • Change in script: A class "sudoSlider-dragging" is added to the body while the user is dragging an element.
  • Change in script: Prefixing touchHandle with ">" (like "> img"), will limit the touchHandle to select within the slider.
  • Change in script: startSlide can now be set to a new special value "random", which will make it select a random of the slides.
  • Change in script: fixed a bug when interruptible and history was used.

v3.4.0 (2015-01-28)

  • Change in demos: Fixed that the fullscreen demo bugged when putting the window in "portrait" mode.
  • Change in script: Resetting the position using margins and translate when slider is initialized.
  • Change in script: The setOption method no longer accepts an object of options, that behaviour is now in the new setOptions method.
  • Change in script: Added the sudoSlider object as an extra argument to the callback: ajaxload, afteranimation and beforeanimation. The other functions already has it as "this".
  • Change in script: If you have a single tag with class="slidesContainer" under the SudoSlider element, all the slides can (and will) be placed under that element.
  • Change in script: The method "adjust" now adjusts twice, first time when its called, and a second in a 0ms timeout.
  • Change in script: Removed the controlsShow option, since it was redundant.
  • Change in script: A factory method that returns the default options is now available at $.fn.sudoSlider.getDefaultOptions
  • Change in script: Fixed some handlers that wasn't unbound when the slider was destroyed.
  • Change in script: Fixed 2 bugs relating to height/width adjustments while an animation is running.
  • Change in script: Auto is now stopped when destroying (but will start again on init if the option is still true).
  • New: Added the SliderBuilder, that can be used to build a slider, and test out options.
  • Change in demos: Removed the navigation in slider demo.
  • Change in demos: Removed the tabs 2 demo.

v3.3.2 (2014-10-21)

  • Change in script: Touch now works well when you slide across multiple slides, that includes if slideCount > 1.
  • Change in script: Added a new option CSSease, so you can set the ease used for CSS and JavaScript animations separately.

v3.3.1 (2014-10-05)

  • Change in script: Added the mouseTouch option (thanks to foobear). That pr. default disables that mouse input acts as touch input when touch is enabled.
  • Change in script: Changed the way scrolling is allowed when using touch on a touch device (thanks to foobear).
  • Change in script: Added allowScroll option, so you can disable the behaviour that allows scrolling while dragging the slider using touch.
  • Change in docs: Removed the ticker mode demo.
  • Change in script: Fixed an of by one alignment problem, caused by some CSS.
  • Change in script: Improved animation startup time for all animations where boxes or slices are animated in (so when they fade in, slide in, grow in etc.).
  • Change in script: Responsive option is now true as default.
  • Change in docs: Added the "touch and links" demo. Showcasing links inside a slider that you can move around using touch.
  • Change in script: You can have wildcards when specifying effect. So "box*Grow*" chooses randomly between every effect matching that.
  • Change in script: No more ugly z-index when doing animations.
  • Various fixes. Including some Old-IE fixes.

v3.3.0 (2014-06-24)

  • Change in script: Fixed that an empty slider didn't work, and that ajaxloaded images would load wrong in some situations.
  • Change in script: Added a new option: "touch". When enabled you can swipe the slider back and forwards using mouse of touch input.
  • Change in script: Changed the touch demo from using touchSwipe to using the new option. Also removed touchSwipe script from the js/lib/ folder.
  • Change in script: Added the touchHandle option. So you can specify what the user can drag. Even something that isn't within the slider.
  • Change in docs: Added touchHandle demo.
  • Change in docs: Added touchHandle outside slider demo.
  • Change in docs: Added fullscreen demo.
  • Change in script: Fixed that continuous with ajax content bugged.
  • Change in script: InsertSlide now accepts negative number for positions. -1 equals inserting a slide in the far right of the slider, -2 one left of that etc.
  • Change in script: The setOption method now also accepts an object, that represents option names and option values to be changed.
  • Change in docs: Removed the "Responsive height/width", "flashlike" and "fade not crossfade" demo.
  • Change in script: The controls container now has class="controls" instead of id="controls". And the container for the numeric controls has class="numericControls" instead of class="controls". These are just new default option values, they can easily be changed through options.
  • Change in script: The container that has the slide now has class="slidesContainer" and each slide has class="slide"
  • Change in script: Added a destroyCallback option. It is called after the slider has been destroyed (that includes when options are changed).
  • Change in script: New effects, added optional suffix "Rounded" to all grow effects. Try it out in the all effects demo. Now 132 effects.
  • Change in script: Fixed that when preloadAjax was false, nothing except the first slide was ever loaded. And other problems related to Ajax.
  • Change in script: The auto animation pauses when responsive is on and the window is resized.
  • Change in script: Remove the animationZIndex option. Now the z-index of the overlaying animation is found more intelligently.

v3.2.2 (2014-02-11)

  • Change in script: Made the dirty fix in 3.2.1 into a clean one.
  • Change in script: Fixed that ajaxLoaded slides were wrapped in an <li> when they should be wrapped in a <div> (and the other way).
  • Change in script: Numeric controls now also use data-target instead of rel attribute.
  • Change in docs: The explorer effects demo shows, when you select a prefix, what effects that prefix hits.

v3.2.1 (2014-02-09)

  • Change in script: Before when using continuous, i would clone some of the slides, to make sure that even if you scrolled further than the last slide, then there were still something to show. Now i instead reorder the slides before an animation.
  • Change in demos: Removed the "responsive fixed width slides" demo.
  • Change in script: When using customLinks, the script now looks after a "data-target" to see what the customLink is supposed to do. "rel" attribute still works for backwards comparability.
  • Change in script: Fixed that when using ticker mode (auto with pause 0 and continuous), the slider would sometimes start by animating frot the last to the first slide, then jump to the second.
  • Change in script: Renamed the push effects to pushOut. And introduced the pushIn and stack effects. Now there's 118 effects.
  • Change in script: Fixed flicker in some effects in 3.2.0

v3.1.7 (2013-12-18)

  • Change in script: Fixed that <li> tags were always used to fill in the non-existing slides if ajax is on. In some sliders we want <div>'s.
  • Change in script: Fixed weird Firefox bug. (If you have a responsive slider, the slider might "push" the rest of the content down while initializing, it is moved back into place before anything is renders, but Firefox still goes crazy)
  • Change in script: Decreased the time it takes to initialize a responsive slider in some browsers.
  • Change in script: Fixed that a responsive slider sometimes adjusted as if there were a scrollbar, while there isn't a scrollbar.
  • Change in demos: Added the responsive height/width demo, that shrinks in both width and height.

v3.1.6 (2013-11-29)

  • Change in script: You can now specify the pause between slides pr. slide. Just set the "data-pause" attribute on the slide. See the auto.html demo.
  • Change in script: Fixed that the insertSlide didn't work well when the slide container wasn't an "<ul>".

v3.1.5 (2013-11-18)

  • Change in script: When sliding to the next or previous, the slider will no longer go the other way, even if that path is shorter. (Thanks sjaakmans )
  • Change in script: exposed runWhenNotAnimating as a public method.

v3.1.0 (2013-07-19)

  • Change in script: Added a goToNext() method when making your own effects. By calling this the slider will instantly go to the next slide, and you can continue the effect afterwards.
  • Change in script: Removed the boxes and boxesGrow effects.
  • Change in script: Changed the remaining box effects, so that when they grow (in/out) the movement originates from the center.
  • Change in script: Added a whole bunch of new effect. And renamed some of the existing effects. (Now there is 105 effects).
  • Change in docs: Changed the explorer effects, to show the effects in a nicer way. The old explorer effects is now "all effects".
  • Change in script: If you specify the attribute "data-effectout" on a slide, that will specify the effect when leaving that slide. The data-effectout takes precedence over data-effect.
  • Change in script: Added interruptible option, by setting it to true, the current animation will be interrupted if the slider is told to go to another slide. (This is a reintroduction of the option that was previously called clickableAni).
  • Change in script: If you set an effect like "box" it will result in a random effect that chooses between all effects starting with "box". This work for all strings that doesn't hit a specific effect.
  • Change in script: Fixed that the slider sometimes tried to animate to the next slide, before it had finished the first one. (If you clicked while the slider was animating).
  • Change in script: Fixed that the slider would flicker in some browsers when using startSlide > 1 and AJAX.
  • Change in script: All effects now take exactly the amount of time specified in the options to complete.
  • Change in script: Changed the default speed to 1500.
  • Change in script: Fixed that Ajax loaded images in some browsers where forced to have the images original resolution (overwriting any CSS rules).
  • Change in script: Added a speed argument to the goToSlide method.
  • Change in script: Fixed that the autoHeight/width animation didn't take the amount of time specified in the attribute data-speed.
  • Change in script: Using all CSS animations pr default, with JavaScript animations as a fallback. This means that the easing option (if used) should be adjusted to work with CSS transformations (or disable the CSS transformations). The default "swing" ease is automaticly converted to a "cubic-bezier"
  • Change in script: Added the useCSS option, which can be used to turn off CSS animations.
  • Change in script: When the next/prev controls are hidden, it is done using visibility:hidden instead of display:none.
  • Change in script: Added the loadStart and loadFinish options. They are callbacks that run when the sliders waits with an animation because a slide (or more) isn't loaded. (Note: Not at init).
  • Change in script: If history is enabled, the update of URL will now be performed in the beginning of the animation, instead of the end.
  • Change in docs: Upgraded to jQuery 1.10.2
  • Change in docs: Removed the "keep slider focused demo".
