This is a very useful extension. But for Cinnamon 2.4 it is not working. Please update it. Many thanks :)

I'm running Mint 14. Display is great on a dual-monitor setup, only showing the windows on the primary monitor. Shift+Alt+Tab and mouse scroll wheel work.

There's a problem though, regular Alt+Tab-ing takes 1.5 seconds to switch between the two most recently opened windows. That is, if you press Alt, then press Tab while holding Alt, in about two seconds the window list will appear. This delay is presumably to avoid computing the thumbnails if the user wants to quickly Alt+Tab between two applications. The problem is that the quick Alt+Tab takes uncomfortably long (vs. instant) if you do it more than once in a row.
