v3.5.4 – with lots of translation updates & bugfixes – is available

I decided to make another minor release as lots of new and updated translations as well as some annoying bugs and changes needed attention.

The release cycle is currently a bit longer than usually as I am still working hard on finishing pro version 1.0. Unfortunately it takes a bit longer than planned initially as I got some external dependencies I can´t really accelerate :-/

On the other hand this also has some good sides as I could use the time to finish more features than planned for pro v1.0. Here is a list of already finished features and optimizations you will get once the pro plugin is released:

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.

Changelog for v3.5.4:

Changes & optimizations

  • updated OpenStreetMap attribution text and link
  • add compatibility check for WP Minify (which is causing layer maps to break if HTML minification is active)
  • update jQuery-Timepicker-Addon to v1.2.2 and compress file with jscompress.com
  • load local jquery instead of from Google when pressing tinyMCE button (thx pippinsplugins.com!)

Bugfixes

  • Mapquest Aerial basemap was broken as API endpoint was changed
  • removed double resolution settings for Cloudmade basemaps as tiles were distorted on non-retina displays
  • fixed HTML validation issue (missing alt-tag on image)
  • fixed potential XSS issue on backend when using map shortcodes (thx City of Vienna!)
