With v3.6.5 I added a fix to display the special characters &, < and > correctly when hovering an icon on a map (and not display them as & < or > as before). Unfortunately this fix had the side effect that if other special chars were used in the marker name, that layer maps could be broken. v3.6.6 solves this issue now.
For even more features and optimizations (see the comparision page), please use the integrated pro upgrader to start a free 30-day-trial of Leaflet Maps Marker Pro.
Pro v1.3.1 has also been released today with the following highlight:
- new options to set text color in marker cluster circles (thanks Simon!)
- GeoJSON output for markers did not display marker name if parameter full was set to no
- GeoJSON output could break if special characters were used in marker names
Thanks to many motivated contributors, free v3.6.6 comes with the following translation updates:
- Chinese (zh_TW) translation thanks to jamesho Ho, http://outdooraccident.org
- Dutch translation thanks to Patrick Ruers, http://www.stationskwartiersittard.nl
- Latvian translation thanks to Juris Orlovs, http://lbpa.lv and Eriks Remess http://geekli.st/Eriks
- Polish translation thanks to Tomasz Rudnicki, http://www.kochambieszczady.pl
If you want to contribute to translations (Persian would be great 😉 ), please visit http://translate.mapsmarker.com/projects/lmm for more information. Please note that translators are also compensated for their contribution – for example if a translation is finished less than 50%, the translator gets a free 25 licenses pack worth €199 as a compensation for completing the translation to 100%.
Outlook – my plans for the next release
Please see the roadmap for a rough schedule for planned features of the pro version and please subscribe to this blog (via RSS or Email) or follow @MapsMarker on twitter if you want to stay up to date with the latest development news.
