  • support for highlighting markers also on fullscreen layer maps by using the URL parameter ?highlightmarker=…
  • option to center maps on popup centers instead of markers when opening popups
  • use marker zoom level for centering markers on layer maps by clicking on list of markers-links (can be changed to layer zoom in settings)
  • add paging support on layer edit pages for the table below the editor (listing all assigned markers)
  • show edit-marker-link as image in list of markers for each marker on backend and frontend
  • new tool: marker validity check for layer assignements to verify if markers are assigned to layers that do not exist (anymore)
  • new “tap” & “tapTolerance” interaction options (enables mobile hacks for supporting instant taps) – thx Mauricio!
  • new “bounceAtZoomLimits” maps interaction option (to disable bouncing back when pinch-zooming beyond min/max zoom level)
  • new interaction option to enable scrollWheelZoom for fullscreen maps only (thx iamjwk!)
  • improved Google maps performance by reducing laggy panning (thx rcknr!)
  • “open popup”-links in the list of markers below layer maps now also change URL for better shareability (by adding ?highlightmarker=… – thx Peter!)
  • better performance on marker edit pages due to optimized loading of custom TinyMCE CSS stylesheets

An update to the latest version is – as always – highly recommended.
