The module is developed and maintained by Philip Blaauw.
I like to thank developers like Aaron Couch (helped with adding Image cache support to the module) and Josh Waihi (helped with reorganizing PHP setting declarations) for their interest and help with the module. I also appreciate the help of others who found bugs, made suggestions for improvements, made issues to improve the documentation and who made reviews of the module.
Support and development of the module is made possible by selling new custom theme layouts and by paid services like installations and customizations of slideshow solutions.
Future of the dynamic display block module.
The module will get a 1.0 release version of the current RC6 version which fixes bugs. A new 2.x dev version for drupal 6 will be created which will have new functionality like in the Drupal 7 version of the ddblock module and in the views_slideshow_ddblock module for drupal 6.
Drupal 7 development version is released, please help with testing. The module now uses field mapping of views fields to slideshow theme fields instead of preprocess functions. An extra prev/next pager is available in all slideshow themes, an example theme with a scrollable pager is added. The module makes now use of themed views data instead of raw views data. No preprocess function anymore.
For paid installation, configurations and customization of the module and slideshow themes, you can contact me via my contact form. I also do a wide range of drupal development, configurations and theming for Drupal sites.
There are several other Drupal slideshow / carousel / rotator / tab modules available. Have a look at this comparison to find out what suits you best.
