  • Added ability to select what content properties to display either in the Control Panel or on a per-content basis. Properties can be changed at will and likewise reordered as required. [rockdj]

  • Display a Collection’s saved rich text on the KML view, if it exists. [rockdj]

  • Retrieve default customised styles from those set in the site’s control panel. [rockdj]

  • Added ability to display custom styles for content in the KML-openlayers view, with the styles managed through the relevant annotation. [rockdj]

  • Updated the kml_openlayers.js Javascript to handle the case of accessing the KML-openlayers view directly. [rockdj]

  • Changed linewidth to be able to accept float values. [rockdj]

  • Integrated zgeo.plone.kml package.

  • Updated the kml_openlayers.js Javascript to use the current URL’s context to access @@kml-document. Accessing this in a relative manner represents problems for URLs being rewritten in a proxy (eg Deliverance). [rockdj]

  • Renamed Kml Layer
