Vietnamese translation

Thanks to Hoai Thu, http://bizover.net, Vietnamese is now the 34th supported translation by Maps Marker 🙂

map tiles loading via SSL if available

Map tiles for Google Maps and bing maps have already been loaded via SSL if your WordPress site is also being loaded via SSL. I now also added SSL support for OpenStreetMap, Mapbox and OGD Vienna to avoid mixed content warnings in the browser.

Other changes & optimizations

  • increased security by hardening search input field for markers on backend
  • optimized performance by moving version checks for PHP and WordPress to register_activation_hook()
  • optimized performance by running pro active check only on admin pages
