The GoogleMaps 2 plugin is finally ready

It has taken quite longer than I expected in order to get the new functionality ready, but there was lot of internal changes, some small ones, other big ones that required testing, adjusting, fixing bugs, then a new idea to add a little detail and all the testing was needed again.

I have already explained the main ideas behind the new version: removing some limitations, and giving more power to the user. Of course there are lots of other things that can be done with the Google Maps API, but it would requiere someone a lot of dedicated time in order to put everything in a single interface, and also make it usable by plain users (the ones that ask "the installer now says 'Next', should I press it?)

Unfortunately as this is just javascript and this version is not open source I can't provide a demo so you can test it because then it would be trivial to copy it. I don't think it's worth my time to write/use any kind of obfuscation so you'll have to judge based on the 1.97 demo and checking the new manual. (an advice to any 'smart guy': don't bother trying to guess filenames, there's no zip uploaded and if I upload the data, it will be available only under a password protection), only the install guide is available.

Hi there,

nice plugin, seems to work really fine and now the big question: How do I obtain this nice peace of code?

I still need to find a way to distribute it. I don't want to be checking the mail and replying to the payments with the zip, because that can be boring.

Hm, there are many service providers you can use..


Depends on the fees you would like to pay :-)

Hope you get this done in the next time.. Any ideas about the pricing and licensing?

Thanks a lot

My plan is to provide licenses at 15€, or if you are a corporation
that want to use it in several webs then just 50€.

If you are interested you can send the payment with PayPal to
alfonso -at- martinezdelizarrondo - dot- com and I'll send you the current version, as well as any future updates. (there are no annual fees or per version, just a one time payment)
