Semantic Maps 0.7.1
Version 0.7.1 of Semantic Maps is the next minor release after Semantic Maps 0.7 that adds some new features and includes a number of internal fixes and software architecture improvements that improve Semantic Maps extendibility.
Upgrading existing installations
Installations of Semantic 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.
Semantic Maps 0.7.1 closes a number of bugs and minor issues that have been identified in earlier versions.
