CDM Platform 3.12 (released on December 21st, 2015)

Note: Version 3.9, 3.10 and 3.11 were minor releases mostly for development reasons and were not published

What's new?

  • DataPortal

    • Taxon experts can now be displayed in a new tab of the taxon pages.
    • Maps adapted to different screen size. Openlayers try to adapt to the screen size and the map aspect ratio can be set instead of fixed width and height (#5385)
    • MapProxy established (#5023): Background layers for the maps can now be retrieved via the Cybertaxonomy MapProxy The layers served through the map proxy are delivered much faster and availability problems of some map server are circumvented this way. It is therefore highly recommended to use the map proxy versions of the base layers instead of the original ones so far a map proxy version is available. You may want to adapt the Geo & Map settings in your dataportal accordingly.
