Free v3.7 with support for csv/xls/xlsx/ods export is available

Free v3.7 replaces the old csv export method with an optimized and updated CSV/XLS/XLSX export method and also includes smaller optimizations under the hood as well as some bugfixes.

Pro v1.4 has also been released today with the following highlight:

Within the plugins header, you now find a new entry “Import/Export” which allows you to start an export (and import when using pro version):

Other changes & optimizations

  • switched from curl() to wp_remote_post() on API geocoding calls for higher compatibility
  • Improved error handling on metadata errors on bing maps – use console.log() instead of alert()

Bugfixes

  • alignment of panel and list marker icon images could be broken on certain themes
  • added fix for loading maps in woocommerce tabs (thx Glenn!)
  • default error tile image and map deleted image showed wrong www.mapsmarker.com url (ups)
  • backslashes in map name and address broke GeoJSON output (and thus layer maps) – now replaced with /
  • tabs in popuptext (character literals) broke GeoJSON output (and thus layer maps) – now replaced with space
