Blueberry, a jQuery image slider plugin for responsive web design

The main issue with current image slider plugins is most require a fixed width/height to function correctly. Some can be hacked with CSS media queries, but personally I didn't find it ideal. Blueberry is a jQuery plugin I've written for creating image slideshows that are compatible with fluid/responsive web layouts, like those created using the 1140px grid from cssgrid.net. It's in the early stages at the moment, with essentially what is a development release. The project is on GitHub:- github.com/marktuk/… I do hope to continue developing plugin and welcome contributors, but my main hope is that developers of other image slider plugins take notice and make their plugins compatible. Perhaps in the development of Blueberry we can put together some standard functions that other developers can adopt for making their plugins compatible with fluid/responsive layouts. Please share your feedback, criticisms, support. I am keen to find out what others think of this project.
