Today I had a great meeting with Michael Kalina (@mkalina on twitter) who is specialized in building high-quality WordPress themes. He gave me quite useful feedback for my plugin which I decided to implement with v2.9.1.
One personal request: as WordPress added a new review feature for plugins hosted on wordpress.org, I kindly invite you to leave your opinion about my plugin at http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/leaflet-maps-marker.
Here´s what´s new in detail in v2.9.1:
improved backend usability
The form fields for marker and layer shortcode now automatically focus if you select them:
This makes it easier to copy the shortcode and paste it into a post or page.
refreshed backend design
I minimized the admin header and button now turn dark blue when you are on the selected page:
The former header moved into the new footer on each page.
I also did some finetuning on tables (no more header with columns “Parameter” and “Value”, maximized their widths etc) and headings.
Thanks to many motivated contributors, v2.9.1 comes with the following translation updates:
- Spanish translation thanks to Alvaro Lara, http://www.alvarolara.com

I am currently working hard on preparing a pro version with even more features like adding markers from frontend, marker clustering, gpx support and more. More details about this version will follow soon.
