The Google Maps plugin for Craft CMS has recently been updated to v4.1, bringing with it a few notable changes. A handful of features and some helpful bug fixes have been rolled out, here's a list of what's new...
After many years of stagnation, Google has given some serious love and attention to their marker clustering library (which Google maintains as a separate piece of software). We've now integrated the newly refactored library into our plugin, in order to provide complete native support for marker clustering.
In addition to the new & improved features listed above, we've patched many bugs and tweaked a few things for performance. Between v4.0 - v4.1, our primary goals were (1) feature parity with Smart Map, and (2) patch any early stability issues, along with (3) add a few new features to test the flexibility of the recent refactor.
We're happy to report that we have achieved these goals... the Google Maps plugin is strong and healthy, and will continue to grow and evolve for many years to come. Thanks for your continued support, and as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or requests! 🙏
