Very simple and useful solution. Being able to use normal blocks within a slide makes it really versatile. Great support for individual help and quick response to bug reports.

Gutenberg support is a definite advantage; I installed it even when it wasn’t updated

The plugin gives you the freedom to design your own sliders. You can add the entire core block as a slider element.
