The first jQuery plugin to use jQuery Cycle plugin as a fullscreen background slideshow.
Documentation can be found at: http://blog.aaronvanderzwan.com/2012/07/maximage-2-0/
Full demo can be found at: http://www.aaronvanderzwan.com/maximage/2.0/
Version 2.0.8: * [Fixed] With jQuery removing $.browser Maximage now does it's own browser detection.
Version 2.0.7: * [Fixed] I have completely rewritten the Old.preload() method to avoid a Stack Overflow bug found in IE7 & IE8 if there are more than 13 slides. * [Added] QUnit tests in /tests
Version 2.0.6: * [Added] Add ability for backgroundSize option to be passed as a function to the plugin. This way you can completely customize how you want the image to resize. See example @ http://www.aaronvanderzwan.com/maximage/2.0/#CustomBGSize * [Added] Added a landing page with code explanations for some examples.
Version 2.0.5: * Now you can call maximage on any object and it will fill and center it (pass it a string, 'maxcover', 'maxcontain', 'fill' or 'center'). This makes it really easy to have any visual element be the fullscreen background element of the slideshow (HTML5 video, etc). A small explanation / tutorial can be found at: http://blog.aaronvanderzwan.com/forums/topic/maximage-cover-helper-function/ * Exposed options to be global * Created "Adjust" object to handle math for fit and center functions * Remove Timer object (it wasn't being used anymore)
Version 2.0.4: * Added CSS transitions as the default 'easing' cycle option (Thanks to Roger Braunstein for this idea [http://partlyhuman.com/]) * Added "cssTransitions" option that can force the plugin to run without using CSS transitions * Renamed "noBackgroundCSS" to "cssBackgroundSize" and changed the default to "true" * Added browser detection for CSS transitions and BackgroundSize to avoid dependence on Modernizr * Removed Jquery Easing plugin from the demo as I was not using it anyways
Version 2.0.3: * Added "noBackgroundCSS" option that forces the plugin to run without using CSS3's background-size
Version 2.0.2: * Added "fillElement" option that provides the ability to constrain your slideshow to a container element (not just the window)
Version 2.0.1: * Added backgroundSize option so that older browsers can act as though they support CSS3 background-size:contain * Now using dynamic backgroundSize CSS3 check for older browser functionality
Version 2.0: * Fixed compatibility with older browsers, specifically a bug that was creating white space after browser resize
Version 2.0-beta3: * Added ability to add other HTML within Slides (still to be tested in pre-CSS3 browsers)
re: alancwoo - Added the ability to use a data-href attribute on the images. Thus one can now use this attribute for various things such as jquery tooltips, click functions etc.
