Announcing: mapguide-react-layout 0.9.1

This is a small bug fix release that brings updates to key libraries we use:

And includes the following fixes:
This release also has one small enhancement, the viewer now supports a mount option for specifying initial visibility of template elements (Legend, Task Pane, Selection Panel). Currently this will have the most impact when used with the Aqua and Sidebar viewer templates.

For other viewer templates, this new feature won't have much effect yet. For example, take the Slate template.

The very design of this template means that if you wanted all Legend/TaskPane/SelectionPanel to be hidden initially, you just cannot do it. Because they all reside in an accordion, one of these elements has to be visible. The original Fusion templates (at least slate from my memory) could conceivably have Legend/TaskPane/SelectionPanel all hidden because its sidebar was collapsible. That is not the case in this iteration of Slate (and the other ported templates with a sidebar). Having collapsible sidebars in these viewer templates will be a problem a future release will be fixing.

Finally, one thing that was actually possible in the 0.9 release, but I didn't really mention because I wanted to make sure this feature was working before actually announcing it is that Script Commands which is the InvokeScript replacement in mapguide-react-layout can be used with the standard viewer bundle. You no longer need to exclusively use the npm module to have support for Script Commands.

You can see an example of script command registration using the standard viewer bundle here.
