Now let´s get to the highlight of v3.6.5:

optimized marker and layer admin pages for mobile devices

The backend for creating maps was not optimized for mobile devices, which especially was a problem on devices with small viewports like iPhones:

mobile-fix-width2

Anyway this has changed now: when you add or edit a map with your mobile for example, you now see the map in full width – allowing you to do the same actions as on a desktop computer.

Other changes & optimizations

  • removed workaround for former incompatibility with jetpack plugin (has been fixed with jetpack 2.2)

Bugfixes

  • tabs from address now get removed on edits as this breakes GeoJSON/layer maps (thx Chris!)
  • save button in settings was not accessible with certain languages active (thx Herbert!)
  • htmlspecialchars in marker name (< > &) were not shown correctly on hover text (thx fredel+devEdge!)
