Advanced keyboard navigation and v0.9.4
We are now introducing advanced keyboard navigation support via a small optional addon script. By default even without this addon the SmartMenus plugin includes basic keyboard navigation support - i.e. a user can use the Tab key to cycle through all main and sub menu links. This addon takes keyboard navigation to a more advanced level by allowing the use of the keyboard arrow and Esc keys to browse the menu tree conveniently. Additionally a hotkey can be set too if needed - i.e. a keyboard shortcut that will send focus to any menu tree. Here is an online demo with instructions (it is, of course, also included in the download package):
We are also releasing v0.9.4 today which includes some fixes for keyboard navigation on touch devices. It should now work equally well on touch or mouse-driven devices. This version also includes some other fixes and generic optimizations so all in all it's a recommended update for all users.
