The following new features were added at version 2.4
All features from the KML file are fully accessible via the API. This results in some powerful possibilities because not only can features from a remotely hosted KML file be displayed, they can be queried and also used as input to geometry or geoprocessing services as well as other web services.
The Mobile Popup Widget is an info window designed and optimized for maps on mobile devices. It provides an info window with a small footprint when a feature is initially touched. Once open, the info window has a button to fill the screen with the feature's attributes so all info about a feature can be seen.
Several enhancements were made to the measurement widget at 2.4. The constructor now accepts additional options for length and area measurement units and four new methods were added for more fine grained control over the widget:
Projected coordinate systems are now fully supported and a bug with displaying coordinates on machines with specific locales was fixed. Finally, the widget now fires and onMeasureEnd event.
At version 2.4 the workflow for working with WMTS has been simplified through the addition of a new layer class. It was previously possible to use a WMTS by creating a custom layer and this was demonstrated in a sample.
Like other layer classes in the API, the WMTSLayer class takes a URL and optional parameters. It can be added to a map like any other layer. If the optional resourceInfo object is not supplied, then a proxy page is required. New, updated proxy pages have been posted to accommodate this new functionality.
Specific bug fixes for this release:
Like version 2.3, version 2.4 uses Dojo 1.6.1.
