The following relate to the new Images/Gallery that is part of core Myth 
and intended to replace the MythGallery plugin.

No theme modifications are necessary: the default image-ui.xml should 
work well enough for all themes. The Theme Development Guide has been 

There is no default-wide version: the default one uses relative sizing 
to cater for all aspects.

An unusual feature of the Gallery is that it zooms thumbnails by 
switching between buttonlists. The theme must define an "images0" 
buttonlist for smallest/'most zoomed out' thumbnails. It can also define 
any number of optional (consecutively numbered) buttonlists "images1", 
"images2" etc for larger thumbnails that will be used when zooming in. 
The default theme file defines grids of 10x6, 8x4, 6x3 & 4x2.

Slideshow transitions may move images around the screen (for example the 
"Slide" transition). The default slideshow image is fullscreen. If you 
use a smaller image (ie. create a border) then you will need to add an 
image mask to prevent transitions from overdrawing the borders.
