  1. Increase the cycle transition duration to half a second, and change the animation such that each slide fades out before the next one fades in. Refer to the Cycle documentation to find the appropriate option to enable this.
  2. Set the cyclePaused cookie to persist for 30 days.
  3. Constrain the title box to resize only in ten pixel increments.
  4. Make the slider animate smoothly from one position to the next as the slideshow advances.
  5. Instead of letting the slideshow loop forever, cause it to stop after the last slide is shown. Disable the buttons and slider when this happens.
  6. Create a new jQuery UI theme that has a light blue widget background and dark blue text and apply the theme to our sample document.
  7. Modify the HTML in mobile.html so that the list view is divided up by the first letters of the book titles. See the jQuery Mobile documentation for data-role="list-divider" for details.
