The highlight of the upcoming release is support for assigning markers to multiple layers, so I kindly ask beta testers to take a special focus on that new feature:
Updated translations have not been included yet but will be extracted from https://translate.mapsmarker.com/ shortly before the final release.
The final release v2.4 with more detailed release notes is planned to be released within the next week, depending on issues reported by beta testers.
Please see the end of this post on how to update to v2.4-beta1.
