Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your feedback. Responses follow :) .

1) We were unaware of this issue. Could you explain a bit more ?

2) Thanks for the suggestion. This would certainly be implemented in the 
next iteration.

3) Actually it does, but is somewhat dependent on versions 5+. So we 
implemented the template constant for some users who don't have access 
to a newer version. This way they can use a different installation of 
IM. We are hoping to remove this 'hack' soon.

4) The BE controlled caching/indexing will be made optional so that the 
user has the choice of doing it in the FE (like you mentioned) as well. 
This solution is already in place, however would be released together 
with the other features as the next update.

Actually when you re-index the gallery, it only recreates the 
changed/new images. However, if you have a large number of images, it 
does take quite a bit of time.
