Version 0.7.1 of Maps is the next minor release after Maps 0.7 that adds some new features and includes a number of internal fixes and software architecture improvements that improve Maps extendibility.
Upgrading existing installations
|Name||Required||Recommended Version||Supported Versions|
|MediaWiki||Yes||1.16 or above||1.16 or above (use 0.7.2 for MW 1.15.x)|
Installations of Maps 0.7 can be upgraded by just replacing the files. This release is backward compatible with 0.7, so all features working with 0.7 should also work fine with 0.7.1. If problems do occur, it is possible to go back to 0.7 by simply using the old files.
For upgrading older versions, please see the installation instructions.
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.
As usual, translations have been extended thanks to the Translatewiki.net project.
Maps 0.7.1 fixes a number of small issues, mainly with OpenLayers, that have been identified in earlier versions.
