WhirlyGlobe-Maply 2.1 Beta2

The new beta is out for the Component.  I used to host this stuff on github, but they abruptly stopped letting you do that.  So Dropbox it is.

New Features


  • Lofted Polygons; there's a blog post.  They're pretty.
  • Tweaks to the shape display (cylinders, spheres, etc).
  • The Component now supports locally paged spherical earth quad tree layers.
  • The sample app now does the globe (WhirlyGlobe) and the map (Maply).
  • Lighting!  It's sort of 'eh', but getting better.  At least you can control it now.
  • Shaders... yeah, I'd stay away from this one.  I need it for client work, but I'm not sure what direction it's going to go.
  • Lots and lots of random bug fixes.

This is also the first beta I'm putting out for Maply.  The data structures are the same, and the controls similar.  Just create a MaplyViewController instead of a WhirlyGlobeViewController and you're off.
