Maps Marker Pro 4.0 preview

No break for Maps Marker Pro development: behind the scenes Thorsten is refactoring & improving nearly every existing code line 🙂

As you can see from the following speedtest, the loading time for maps will be improved significantly as one result:

    If you like, I’m happy to be an alpha tester 🙂
    My username is “svene”

    Dear all, sounds good! I’m really looking forward to speed improvements and elevation graphs. If you still need testers you can give me a short notice!

    We are a current user of Maps Marker v3.1 obviously the release is a little behind. When do you see the release of V4 being available

      Hi David,
      our current plans are to release a first test version of 4.0 in about a week…

    Sorry for the delay, which is mainly caused by our decision to also include the database rewrite we planned for v4.1 in v4.0.
    Anyway we are making good progress steadily and I am sure your patience will be rewarded 🙂

    Is there any chance to see 4.0 in the next weeks, months, years, whatever? Some months ago, you told us about elevation charts. We’re running the Pro edition in our blog and really like to add this “feature”, which is already supported by other apps/plugins for a long time…

    sorry for the delay – as stated in the last comment, we decided to also include the database rewrite with v4.0 which will also improve the performance and flexibility of our plugin significantly, which results in a longer development time than initially planned. Anyway we are currently working hard to be able to release v4.0-beta1 within the next few weeks. I kindly ask for you a little more patience – trust me, it´s worth it 😉

    As long as it will be released before April, 26th…. then my pro licence expires 🙂

    v4.0 dev statistics: 1094 files changed, 174545 insertions & 167432 deletions so far – stay tuned for huge improvements 🙂
