This release includes some minor optimizations and bugfixes.
An updated to the latest version is – as always – highly recommended.
Now let´s get to the highlights of this release:
improve geolocate error reporting
If a user has disallowed geolcation or if there are any other geolocate errors, those are now displayed as modal window on the map:
add custom classes to marker icons
Individual marker icons can now be customised via CSS more easily, as CSS classesare added to each marker (e.g. mmp-marker-icon-1)
add informal German translation
We now also added an informal German translation. Additionally the German translations (formal+informal) are now also used automatically if Austrian or Swiss is set as language in WordPress or your user profile.
- fix duplicate entries in markers list
- set correct canonical link on fullscreen maps
- do not overwrite existing license keys after activation or update
- fix geolocation out of bounds message
- geocoding error messages were not displayed
- fix multisite key distribution
Thanks to 100+ translators this release also includes some update translations, see full changelog for details.
