I would like to introduce you to my new stack named Scroll. Scroll loops through your images in an smooth and elegant fashion. You can customize the way that Scroll will loop through your images. It can either scroll back and forth from left to right or in an infinite loop. Scroll also has a navigation bar that will allow your visitors to scroll through your images even faster.
Scroll is a sweet tool to add to your Stacks toolbox. Make sure that you check it out awesome demo on the Scroll Product Page.
RapidWeaver Classroom posted a few tutorial videos on some of Joe Workman’s stacks. Worth a look. Check it out.
It looks like a huge update to the RSS stacks. New features too, nice.
Make sure to click through and read the details on his Update FAQ.
From Joe’s blog:
Its been a while since the RSS Stacks received a decent update. Today’s update brings in a whole bunch of minor bug fixes and feature requests that we have received over time. These updates will bring all of the RSS stacks to version v1.5.0 with the exception of RSS Ticker which is now at v2.1.0.
- Updating the core RSS parsing engine to accommodate various feed differences. These things can parse pretty much every text feed you can throw at them now.
- Updated to add Sparkle support for auto-updates.
- Ability to adjust animation speeds in RSS Fader.
- Ability to customize the Read More link in RSS Select.
- You can now customize the font size and weight in most of the stacks just like you could in RSS Ticker.
Since the RSS Stacks did not support Sparkle previously, you will need to obtain your updates the old school way. Have a look at our Update FAQ.

A big update to the Curtain Call stack.
From the update blog:
One of our oldest stacks, Curtain Call, has been brought back form the dark ages with a v1.3.0 update. This update does not contain any new features but it has been updated to use all the latest Stacks APIs. This will make is MUCH easier to implement. Since it now support sparkle auto-update, we can easily distribute updates if new features get added.
