Frontpage Slideshow v3.8.0 is now available for all active subscribers to download.

This new version adds automated image retrieval when creating new slides from Joomla articles, in Joomla versions 2.5 and 3.x. If you already use the distinct image fields in Joomla articles, Frontpage Slideshow can load these images when loading the article details in a new slide. Furthermore, if there are no such associated images, Frontpage Slideshow can retrieve the first image inside your content. Of course you can always override the slide image, however this is a handy option for those who wish to use the same media across Joomla articles & their slideshows based on Frontpage Slideshow.

Additionally we have fixed a bug where upload images with mixed case in the file name extension (e.g. jPeg) could not be uploaded. All images file names are now properly normalized before being further processed.

If you are on Joomla 3.7.0, you'll also see the new update notifications inside the component in the Joomla backend, on every Joomla version, even on Joomla v1.5.

You can see a demo of this new version here:
