Slide-box status

There was a blog post about it, and all the open issues related to slide-box were closed, saying there is a new slide-box implementation in 1.2. It is there, but I don’t see it documented, and from what I can tell does not support the slideboxdelegate.

Is the custom Swiper implementation here to stay, or should I build my own wrapper? Is there any plan to build this out with a delegate api so it can be used in the controller?
