I kindly invite all interested users in testing v2.1-beta1 and reporting any issues by using the helpdesk, leaving a comment or using the contact form.
The highlight of the upcoming release is support for AJAX edits on the marker edit pages (no more reloads needed 🙂 ), so I kindly ask beta testers to take a special focus on that new feature (especially testing with different browsers is welcome!).
Updated translations have not been included yet but will be extracted from https://translate.mapsmarker.com/ shortly before the final release.
The final release v2.1 with more detailed release notes is planned to be released within 1-2 weeks, depending on issues reported by beta testers.
Please see the end of this post on how to update to v2.1-beta1.
