    Hello,

    I’ve updated from 1.2.9 to 1.4.2 using the Twelve theme
    (galleria-1.4.2.js, galleria-1.4.2.min.js and
    galleria.twelve.min.js). I’ve tried every new version except the
    last one or two and have always had to fall back to 1.2.9 because
    the scrolling/transitions on different devices are not smooth,
    sometimes to the point of not being usable. It varies with the
    device and the browser but it is apparent on all except internet
    explorer.

    Here are the following device/browser results:

    PC desktop workstation:
    Firefox 33.0: relatively but not entirely smooth (not as good as
    1.2.9)
    Chrome 38: relatively but not entirely smooth (a bit better than
    Firefox but not as good as 1.2.9)
    Internet Explorer 11: very smooth (the best of all options and full
    screen now works – thanks)

    2014 Retina Macbook Pro:

    Firefox 33: not entirely smooth (1.2.9 was perfectly smooth)
    Chrome 38: very smooth (the best of all options – equal to IE 11 on
    PC)
    Safari 8: not smooth – jerky (1.2.9 was perfectly smooth)

    Ipad 2:
    Safari ios 7: Terrible. Nearly unusable (worked very well in
    1.2.9)
    Chrome ios 7: Not as bad as Safari but still terrible (worked very
    well in 1.2.9)

    iPhone 4s: Terrible. Nearly unusable (worked very well in
    1.2.9)

    Please advise.

    Thanks a lot,
    bret

    Seems to be working on my iPhone 6 plus. The only issue I had
    was getting the play button to work after viewing thumbnails. Got
    it going after many clicks.
    I am wondering if it wasn’t smart to keep using 1.2.9 for my
    jobs

    It may be working well on the iPhone 6 because it has so much
    more power than previous generation devices. I’m hopping for the
    code to become more efficient, or at least stay the same, so that
    it will play well on the widest variety of devices. If it was a lot
    smoother using previous versions of Galleria on the same devicesthe
    code must have gotten heavier.

    If there is no resolution then I’m going to have to revert to
    1.9.2 and forgo the Internet Explorer 11 full screen update, which
    would be a shame.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    After 1.2.9 the wheels started to fall off Galleria. I have read
    countless problems with each update since then. To be fair, a lot
    are user issues not galleria. I didn’t feel like going through the
    hair pulling to update to questionable version updates so I’ve
    stayed with 1.2.9. I don’t use full screen features so I can’t
    share your concerns but wish the fix and break update cycle would
    settle into a real stable version.

    FYI, I had to fall back to 1.2.9 for the time being. It works
    perfectly on all of the devices I mentioned above, except full
    screen on Internet Explorer.
