We’re thrilled to announce the release of Maps Marker Pro v4.25, an update which brings forth exciting new additions, key updates, and bug fixes. This release offers enriched user experience, boosted by the addition of LocationIQ basemaps and a feature to show markers when using location finder.
We have also updated our interface with a fresh set of default icons and made a leap forward with the updated Leaflet to 1.9.4. As always, we urge you to keep your Maps Marker Pro up to date to benefit from these enhancements, as well as to maintain access to our dedicated 1:1 support.
For a comprehensive look at all the changes and enhancements included in this release, please dive into the details below:
We are delighted to broaden our cooperation with LocationIQ in the latest release of Maps Marker Pro v4.25. Strengthening our existing partnership, this update sees the integration of LocationIQ basemaps into our innovative plugin, providing more versatility to your mapping experience.
Our partnership with LocationIQ began with the integration of their excellent geocoding services, and we are excited to further leverage their capabilities by incorporating their map tiles as a basemap option in our plugin. Now, users will have the flexibility to use these high-quality, detailed basemaps for their mapping requirements.
In order to use LocationIQ basemaps, register for a free key, the navigate to Settings / Layers / LocationIQ and enter your key there:
After saving, you will be able to select LocationIQ basemaps on the map edit page on the Layers tab:
You can choose between LocationIQ Streets, LocationIQ Dark and LocationIQ Light as styles.
Anyway this is just the beginning. We are in talks with LocationIQ to bring more of their outstanding services into Maps Marker Pro. Stay tuned for further exciting enhancements as we continue to expand our cooperation with LocationIQ. There is more to come, and we can hardly wait to share it with you!
We are excited to keep pace with the evolving world of web mapping with our latest update of Leaflet.js to v1.9.4 in Maps Marker Pro. This version sets the foundation for a modernized user experience in line with the latest advancements in the web platform.
This update is significant as it marks the shift of Leaflet.js into maintenance mode for the 1.x code, with future releases focused on critical bug fixes. While Leaflet.js 2.0 is still in the works, it signals several important changes that will also impact Maps Marker Pro users once leaflet v2 is implemented:
This Leaflet.js update is a significant stride towards a future-proof Maps Marker Pro, capable of providing you with a modern, efficient, and flexible mapping experience. Enjoy these new enhancements and stay tuned for more exciting updates as Leaflet.js continues to evolve!
In light of recent global events, we want to take a moment to express our solidarity with the Leaflet.js community, particularly with its creator, Volodymyr Agafonkin, who is currently facing a dire situation in his homeland, Ukraine.
Volodymyr created Leaflet.js 11 years ago, and it has since been a pivotal tool for the Maps Marker Pro family and many others across the globe. The current crisis in Ukraine has deeply impacted Volodymyr and thousands of innocent civilians who are now fighting for their lives.
We strongly condemn the violence and human rights violations occurring in Ukraine. We echo Volodymyr’s plea: educate yourself and others on the situation, support credible journalism, advocate for strong sanctions against Russia and increased support for Ukraine, and consider donating to Ukrainian charities.
We’ve been deeply moved to see Leaflet.js being used in critical humanitarian efforts, including documenting war crimes and coordinating aid work. We applaud these efforts and stand with the Leaflet community in this challenging time.
Your support matters. As Volodymyr rightly stated, the future of Ukrainian citizens is the future of Leaflet. Let’s unite to ensure the sustainability of this community that has been integral to so many of our digital experiences.
When using the geosearch option field above the list of markers (“London, England, United Kingdom” in the example below), you can now enable the option “Show marker” to also display the a marker icon for the search result on the map:
With v4.25 we also updated the default icons for the map interface to be more consistent:
