WhirlyGlobe-Maply 2.3

I'm pleased to announce the official release of WhirlyGlobe-Maply 2.3.

Yup, it can do both of those.

The big new feature for 2.3 is maps.  Vector maps.

Where to Get WhirlyGlobe-Maply 2.3

Over at github is the canonical place.  The master branch is now on 2.3.  Compiling from source is a bit slow, but then you've got the source.  Be sure to read the README.  Seriously, read it.

You can also download the binary distribution right there.  Less to set up, faster to compile, but there's a lingering sense that you're not cool.  I don't judge.


You can browse the reference documentation right here.

It needs more.... more.  I have a Getting Started guide under development and a rework of the WhirlyGlobe-Maply site to go along with it.  When that's done I'll make more noise about the launch.

Next Up

A few months ago I'd planned to segue into WhirlyGlobe-Maply 3.0, which is the Android/iOS version.  Instead, clients have been paying me to add some big new iOS features.  Damn you paying clients!  So we get at least one more 2.x version.

The develop branch is moving to WhirlyGlobe-Maply 2.4.  I'd stick with the master branch for now.
