Joomla! Store Locator v2.1.0 Released

We are very excited to announce the immediate release of our latest Joomla! Store Locator extension.

  • Joomla 3.x – Version 2.1.0
  • Joomla 1.5/2.5 – Version 1.8.3

This release adds the much desired Responsive layout to the Joomla 3.x branch. Now our Store Locator will instantly theme and match to your site’s responsive template and design patterns if  supported by your template.

We also fixed many bugs and accounted for new and interesting use cases thanks to our wonderful forum posters implemented in both versions. Check the change log for additional details.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

 

Google End of Life for Google Maps API v2

We just have received final notice of shutdown of Google Maps API v2.

This means that if you are using an older application that uses google’s older API, such as our Store Locator prior to v1.7.0, then you will need to update to ensure continued operation of that application.

Here is the official notice:

As you may be aware, JavaScript Maps API v2 was scheduled for shutdown on May 19, 2013. After listening to feedback from developers we decided to extend the deprecation timeline by six months, to November 19, 2013 to allow more time for migration to v3 of the API.

On November 19, 2013 we will deploy a JavaScript wrapper that attempts to automagically turn remaining v2 maps into v3 maps. Though we expect this wrapper to work for most simple maps, we cannot guarantee that your maps will continue to function. We therefore highly recommend that you migrate to v3 before November 19. The good news is that Google Maps JavaScript API v3 is more robust and feature rich than v2, and we’ve written a guide to assist the migration.

Sincerely,

Google Maps API Developer Relations
