have been officially released to production and include a great mix of new functionality as well as enhancements to existing functionality. We’ve also simplified and updated our list of currently supported browsers.
First, let’s talk about new functionality. We’ve introduced new, easy-to-use routing modules to the toolkit. The
modules include the ability to more easily customize the start and end POI icons on the route by using POIs as input to routes. We’ve also added the ability to manually create a route and add it to the map by providing the coordinates that make up the shape of the route; the bonus is that the manually created route then takes on the characteristics of a route generated by the toolkit, so features like draggable routing can be used. Be sure to check out the routing section
Second, this release includes quite a few enhancements especially related to compatibility with browsers on mobile touch devices. From touch events to pinch zooming, we’ve spent a considerable amount of time refining the modules that support the toolkit on mobile touch devices. Updates were not limited to support for mobile touch devices; for a full recap of updates that have been made and issues that have been addressed, please refer to our release notes
Finally, the Developer’s Guide and API Reference Guide received updates as well. The Developer’s Guide includes new samples that highlight the functionality offered by the
modules and the API Reference Guide has also been updated accordingly. We’ve also revised the look and feel of the API Reference Guide to provide a better experience for our developers by making information easier to find.
