This update changes the way the available pins and heatmap images are loaded. The "Cluster" map icons are now loaded from a sub-directory of the styles/DBTech/MemberMap/ directory.

Furthermore, any PNG image added to styles/DBTech/MemberMap/ (not the sub-directory) will now be available for selection as a user group pin image. In short, you can upload custom images!

If you see the heatmap icons available as user group pins, delete the m1.png through m5.png images from the above directory.

Feature: Any PNG image in the /styles/DBTech/MemberMap directory can now be used as a map pin in the user group settings
Change: Moved the "cluster" images to a sub-directory
Update highlights

This update features mostly back-end only changes, updating the Composer autoload method to take advantage of a new feature in XF 2.1 for improved performance and reliability.

There have also been various other back-end only changes to fix compatibility issues with XenForo 2.1.


Complete Change Log

Change: Now utilises new composer autoload method in XF 2.1 for improved performance and reliability
Change: Updated various HTTP requests to match the changes in XF 2.1
Change: Updated geoip2/geoip2 to v2.9.0
Because of a backwards breaking change in XenForo 2.1, and because I plan to take advantage of new features only available in XenForo 2.1, the next version will require XenForo 2.1.

The update will not contain any additional user-facing features or changes.

The current version will NOT work with XenForo 2.1. A blocking issue has been identified with XenForo 2.1:
  • Certain Cron jobs will not work due to a change in the back-end code that powers XenForo (A.K.A. "The Guzzle Change")
The issue has been fixed in an internal build that will be released A.S.A.P., once I am confident enough there are no other blocking issues.

This version contains a significant usability update: You no longer have to manually install the GeoIP database!

The GeoIP database responsible for looking up your members' IP addresses is now automatically kept up to date at regular intervals, and updated every time you install or update the product.
The PHP files responsible for interfacing with the GeoIP database is also kept up to date whenever you update the product.

As a result of these changes, the "GeoIP2 path" setting has been removed as it's no longer necessary.

Due to feedback we've also added an option to disable the new "pin clustering" feature.

Lastly, we've added an install-upgrade.json file in preparation for compatibility with the [TH] Install & Upgrade add-on.

After a lengthy Beta period, this mod is now considered stable enough to be flagged as Gold! 🎉

For those upgrading from v2.0.x, this version has also received back-end updates to improve the stability & reliability of the GeoIP lookups. You will need to wait for the cron job to run through all users again, though, or run it manually.

For those upgrading from an earlier v2.1.0 beta / RC build, this version adds a new clustering feature for pins, as well as improves mobile device compatibility.
