Announcing: MapGuide Maestro 3.5 beta 1

I'm happy to announce the first beta release of MapGuide Maestro 3.5

The significant new features of this beta are some new resource editors for:
  • Simple and Compound Symbol Definitions
  • Watermark Definitions
These editors are really rough quality at the moment and I would like feedback on these editors to see how the usability can be improved. Especially the Symbol Definition stuff as that has existed in MapGuide since 2007, but until now has not had a specialized editor due to the complexity of the XML schema.

If you need a refresher on Symbol Definitions and Advanced Stylization, here's a good starting point.

Other new features and changes include
  • Fusion Editor has been updated to use Google Maps V3. No more API keys required
  • The generated Web Layout for any resource preview includes a new command to report the map extents.
  • A more flexible dialog for error messages
  • Layer Definition editor has been re-structured to use less vertical screen space.
  • The usual assortment of bugfixes
This beta can reside side-by-side with older versions.
