Pro-Version Beta Releases

v3.0-RC1 includes all changes from v3.0-beta1, v3.0-beta2 and v3.0-beta3 as well as the following bug fixes and changes:

  • automatically switched to Algolia Places as default geocoding provider if Mapzen Search without API key is used (API keys get obligatory by April 2017 – free registration is still recommended) -> not effective for beta testers upgrading from v3.0-beta1, v3.0-beta2 or v3.0-beta3 (needs to be changed manually)
  • Beta (opt-in): significantly improved performance for Google basemaps by using the leaflet plugin GoogleMutant (thx Ivan!) -> not effective for beta testers upgrading from v3.0-beta1, v3.0-beta2 or v3.0-beta3 (needs to be changed manually)
  • distinct marker zoom levels when open popups via list of markers links were not used if clustering was disabled
  • default marker popuptext properties were not considered if triggered via geocoding
  • opening popups via list of markers could break map center if clustering was enabled (thx Damian!)
  • undefined javascript warning when clicking on marker name in list of markers if clustering was disabled
  • layer center marker on backend was not shown anymore after clusters got loaded
  • updated to GlotPress 2.3.1 (mark translations as fuzzy, re-enabled password reset by users, design update & more)
  • sort order for list of markers was not restored after clearing search field (thx Damian & Thorsten!)
  • always use https for loading bing maps tiles
  • using “change layer ID”-tool could result in wrong layer assignments (thx Patricia & Thorsten!)
  • importer: do not show invalid value-warnings for createdon & updatedon rows if audit option is off & related source columns are empty

An update for all beta testers is recommended.
