If anyone's interested, there's a new working version of org-html-slideshow that's compatible with org-mode 9.x available here:

Hi everyone,

I've been using the excellent org-html-slideshow (https://github.com/relevance/org-html-slideshow) to generate HTML slides from org-mode, and it's been working well for me for years. 

It generates HTML slides from org-mode using the org-mode heading hierarchy. Tag any heading with the org-tag :slide: and that heading and its contents automatically become their own slide once you export to HTML using org-export-dispatch. 

I prefer org-html-slideshow to org-reveal since it allows me the ability to easily customize the look and feel of slides—by creating a custom slide—simply by adding an org-tag. So if I tag an org-heading with the tag :fullscreenslide: for example (so that the heading looks like * Heading :slide:fullscreenslide:), it will then export that slide to HTML with class="fullscreenslide" — and I can then use CSS to customize the look and feel of all slides with that class. 

Org-html-slideshow also offers a great Presenter View, which opens in a separate tab in your browser, and displays your speaker notes, the current slide, and the next slide. Unfortunately, org-html-slideshow is no longer being actively developed, and a recent update to org-mode has broken the way Presenter View functions. Somehow with the new org-mode updates, the "next slide" view in Presenter Notes mode no longer advances correctly. The "next slide" slide gets stuck in a loop of 4-5 slides, and just repeats those few slides. It does not reliably show you what the next slide is going to be.

I notice that the output from example.org when I export to HTML is fairly different from the example.html that's in the repo. Something in those differences is breaking the ability of Presenter Notes to advance to the next slide:

Anyone else using org-html-slideshow? Does anyone have any thoughts on how to get this working again? Thanks!
