Google officially launched Google Maps API V. 2, which has been undertaken a beta-test for some time already. The new version of API achieved numerous improvement such as cleanising much of the API, and performance improvement and stability in fundamental. Other features include

  • Much smaller JavaScript download.
  • Two additional satellite zoom levels.
  • Overview map.
  • Extensibility and a new GMap2 class.
  • Fewer memory leaks.
  • Debugging log.
  • a GLatLng class that is distinct from GPoint.
Another important update is that version 2 has friedlier terms. Particularly, the two parts of previous terms that troubled developers the most have been clarified :
  • No page view limits.
  • 90-day notice before any advertising-related change.
If wanna more, Maps API Version 2 may entertain you. Have fun!
