The Marble Team has just released Marble 1.1. This release is special! With many new features being developed during Google Code-in, the Marble Team decided to get it out between the usual KDE application releases. The new version provides several new features and improvements:
- Map Creation Wizard and Map Sharing
- OpenDesktop and Earthquakes Online Service
- Extended Plugin Configuration
- Map Editing
- Voice Navigation
As with every Marble release, there is a feature guide with screenshots.
The Marble library released alongside is binary compatible with Marble 1.0 (shipped with version 4.6 of the KDE applications). The source code was tagged on April 14. Binaries for the Nokia N900 are already available in the extras-testing repository. More information at Dennis' blog. Desktop packages of this release will appear on Marble's download page during the upcoming week. There will be packages for Linux, Windows and Mac.
Fedora packages are now queued for updates-testing for Fedora 14 and the upcoming Fedora 15.
