Thankfully, Aditya has fixed the issue with the namespace handling which has made the module incompatible with the latest betas. Since Aditya and I have been taking the module into a somewhat different direction and added some experimental code to our development branch, it was a bit difficult to provide a "stable" version of the module, so we'd be very grateful if you (and of course others) could take this version for a test drive and provide feedback. We would love to say that this version is "guaranteed" to work with the current beta 2012-02-08 and then take up development from here.

Hi Thomas and Aditya,

Many thanks to both of you for uploading a new version of your module.
I installed it with ConTeXt version 2012.02.08, and after doing
	context --generate
	context --make --all
I tried the following minimal example, which results in an error (see below)

%%%% begin talk-test.tex

  [title={Testing SimpleSlides},
   author={A.U. Thor},



%\stoptext % the title page is typeset correctly

\SlideTitle{First slide}

This module is written by Thomas and Aditya.

%%%% end talk-test.tex

The first page (the title page) is typeset correctly if one uncomment the first « %\stoptext » in the above lines (well, it is not anymore midaligned, but this must be something which can be changed).
However as soon as there is \SlideTitle{First slide}, there is an error message, as follows:
<inserted text> 
<to be read again> 
\meta_handle_use_graphic ...a_process_graphic {#3}
\meta_use_graphic ...aphic \currentMPgraphicname }

Best regards: OK
