Changes

Images as layers

The long awaited images as layers feature has finally been added in this release. It allows you to display images with OpenLayers, allowing users to pan and zoom around, and enabling you to place markers to draw attention to certain area's and provide additional information.

Extended translations

As usual, translations have been extended thanks to the Translatewiki.net project.

Bugfixes
