This is a comparison of the carousel and slider scripts available in Tiki trunk as of January 2016. From the developer standpoint, it might be good to consider if all of these should continue to be supported. This is especially because Anything Slider, Galleriffic and Infinite Carousel seem to no longer be in development. If their capabilities are matched by scripts still being actively developed and/or supported, it might be good to retire one or both of them.
Todo: Compare features, etc. to find redundancy and unique abilities.

Sparse Tiki documentation.
Depends on Search, which adds a layer of complexity (for example, search set up and index rebuilding).
|Doesn't work in a module zone.|
After dev decisions about these scripts, this kind of comparison table or similar can be put on doc.tiki.org, if that would be useful to users and admins. For instance, somewhere in this page which already has information on the different alternatives for end users to produce slideshows within tiki: Slideshow
