We're changing the flexslider_add() function in 2.x. Follow this issue for details as they come.
Is there any reason why flexslider_add() is not called when having FlexSlider/Slideshow view? It's a bug?
ok, I figured it out, Format for view should be Flexslider, not Slideshow.
Marking as fixed, since it's not an issue.
