#13462 closed Bug (wontfix)

GoogleMaps object should default to version 2 of google maps

Currently, the google maps will default to version "2.x" if you do not specify a version in your settings. Version "2.x" is basically the alpha branch of google maps:

It should default to either "2.s" or just "2". Note: the map.setUIToDefault(); method (which GoogleMaps adds by default) does not work in "2.s" (currently), so that would have to be changed if "2.s" is decided on instead.

Version: 1.1SVN

nbv4 is right, "2.x" is basically the rough alpha branch. This change should get done independently of #14284.

Whatever support remains for the V2 api should point to either "2" or "2.s"

Unittest missing and dev comments has to change according to the new code. Other than that, this is ready for checkin.

I have marked this ticket as suitable for a first-time committer attending a Don't be afraid to commit workshop.

The next planned session will be hosted by Cardiff Dev Workshop on Saturday 8th June.

If you want to tackle this ticket before then, or at any time in fact, please don't let the fact that it's assigned to me stop you. Feel free to re-assign it to yourself and do whatever you like to it.

According to the Gmaps API website linked above, the API v2 is deprecated.

Version 2 of the Maps API is deprecated, and is warranted only until 19 May 2013. You are strongly advised to start new projects using Version 3, and to convert existing Version 2 projects to Version 3 as soon as possible. Help on migration is available.

Ticket #14284 should fix this issue.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: assignedclosed

Marking as wontfix since v2 will be completely deprecated on November 19, 2013 #14284 should supersede this ticket.
