An OpenLayers map displaying an image layer with some random markers.

Maps 0.7.1 and Semantic Maps 0.7.1 are now available for download. The main new feature in this release is the long awaited images as layers. It allows you to display images with OpenLayers, so users can pan and zoom around, and markers can be placed to draw attention to certain area's and provide additional information. Check out the examples. Some issues have also been fixed, in both extensions, mainly OpenLayers related.

What's next?

Improving the pages in the layer namespace and providing a way to group markers in different overlays in OpenLayers. For a complete overview, see the roadmap. Feel free to propose new features, or help out creating them.
