Free v3.8 is also fully compatible with the upcoming WordPress 3.8 version, which has a revamped admin theme (based on MP6 plugin), which adds support for responsive design in the admin backend.

I adapted the design of Leaflet Maps Marker to fit the new black theme on WordPress 3.8+ and also adjusted the admin bar integration to be fully compatible with responsive design:
