Updating Joomla components

So, for the past month and a half, I've had a lot of time to work on XGallery and XMovie for Joomla 2.5/3.2. It's been 3 weeks since I accepted an offer for a Senior UI Developer but because the company was soon bought out, they went on a hiring freeze. Luckily I wasn't considered a new hire, but someone replacing an employee that left the company. But this caused the paperwork to take longer.

Anyway, this gave me a lot of time to finish up on XGallery and then go through XMovie and get it ready for when I update it for Joomla 3.2. Over the past couple days I updated the modules for these components so they could all function on the front page, as well as adding new features and changing libraries all together. I ended up using the same code I used at eyenetdesigns.com for the XMovie Movie and XMovie jScroller modules and left off Flowplayers jQuery Tools. This will now be the new default layout for jScroller but you will still be able to easily add your own carousel plugin through the templates. For Joomla 3.2 I will most likely change it again to use Bootstraps Carousel. XGallery for Joomla 3.2 is almost finished and fully Responsive using Bootstrap but I think I could make it better, so I probably won't release it just yet. Besides I need to make some more updates too.
