In case you haven't noticed recently, we've been pretty committed to launching new features on a regular basis. Some of these new features will be major and some will be just things that people have been asking for. This update is in the latter category. Many of you have asked for the ability to be able to hide the controls in the slideshows and also to be able to have them run in a loop. Now you can do both. When you drag a slideshow onto a page or select to edit one in the page editor, you will see a new button titled "options". If you click on this you will now see the new options for the slideshow.
Also while I was at it, I improved the overall UI of the slideshow controls because I thought they could be a little cooler and I'm obsessive like that. In addition to the slideshow update I also updated the album links so that they load faster and overall work better. So thanks again for the great suggestions, keep them coming!

UPDATE: I've also just added some additional options to the default gallery page itself. Now if you click on your gallery page in the My Pages application, you'll see some extra options to use either a 3D Gallery or a Photo Grid if you don't want to use the default slide show. Also in these options you can turn the album labels back on so you don't have to rollover albums to see their titles.
