As we get closer to the final 5.3 release, we just rolled-out Release Candidate 4 of our 5.3 JavaScript, AS3, and FUJAX APIs. The major update this time: the addition of more features for adding traffic information into your application. We've also added traffic documentation and code samples for those of you who like that sort of thing.

More details on the Developer Network Beta page, but here's a quick rundown of the updates:

  • You can now set minimum and maximum zoom levels on POIs. The POI would then only be visible on the map between the specified zoom levels.
  • You can now add traffic incident POIs to your map.
  • You can now add traffic flow to your map.
  • Retrieve item by key from collection or map: You can now get a shape back out of the map, or any collection, by using it's Key property.
  • Get reference to a Shape's parent collection: You can now ask a shape to tell you all the different ShapeCollections it is in

Happy trafficking!
Hrmm... that didn't come out quite the way I intended.
