Now let´s get to the highlight of pro v1.5.3:
upgraded leaflet to v0.7.2
With the release of Google Chrome 32, zooming on pro maps (with leaflet v0.7.*) got partially broken for Chrome 32 users. This has been fixed by integrating the latest leaflet version 0.7.2, which was released by Mourner today, many thanks! An update to pro v1.5.3 is highly recommended!
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

How to download / update
The easiest way to update is to use the WordPress update process: login with an user who has admin privileges, navigate to Dashboard / Updates, select plugins to update and press the button “Update Plugins”.
The pro plugin checks every 12 hours if a new version is available. You can also manually trigger the update check by going to Plugins and clicking on the link “Manually check for updates” next to “Leaflet Maps Marker Pro”:
