Lightbox v2.0 released

Lokesh Dhakar has released version 2.0 of his nifty JavaScript image tool, Lightbox.

What’s New in Version 2.0

  • Image Sets: group related images and navigate through them with ease
  • Visual Effects: fancy pants transitions
  • Backwards Compatibility: yes!

The effects are nicely done, and look very similiar to what the guys at alwaysBeta did with it, with the spinning progress indicator. There is also the large close box in the lower right corner, but I’m curious as to why its not in the upper right corner to remain consistent with standard GUI conventions.
