Valenti 5.6.0 If it ain't broke...

After uploading and trying Valenti 5.6.0, I’m reverting back to Version 5.
The 5.6.0 update unfortunately disables some features that were customizable, i.e. being able to designate what goes into the slider. The 5.6.0 update just puts the most recent posts whereas Version 5 let you decide by category what went in there. Also view counts were not able to be seen and there are probably bugs not yet discovered.
Hopefully the authors may ask users for suggestions on what they would like before engineers have at it and make the theme more cumbersome than necessary.
