The largest visible improvement is clearly the new full screen mode of the light box. To enable it, just open your menu item, switch to the advanced options tab and define this light box mode in the Events Layout section. In addition there is now an option for defining the sorting for the events in the Event list. While in the past sorting was only possible using the position field you can now sort by date as well.

Help

There is a manual available here: Event Gallery Manual. It includes a general description of the back end, contains a FAQ section and provides some basic videos.
