The second Beta release of the upcoming GNOME Maps 3.10 application for the GNOME 3.10 desktop environment has been announced a few days ago, bringing improvements and new features.
GNOME Maps 3.10 Beta 2 provides an AppData file for the GNOME Software Center and improves the search results pop-up by adding a scroll window, by displaying place icons, by displaying a search spinner, and by displaying matched part of results in bold fonts.
Moreover, this release adds a context menu with two options: "What's here?" and "I'm here." While the first one will allow users to find the name of the place at pointer position, the second one marks the spot where the user is currently located.
Markup is now successfully handled in search results, some compilation errors with the latest version of the gnome-common package have been fixed, and the following translations have been updated: Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Esperanto, Galician, Hungarian, Irish, Polish, Slovenian, Spanish, Tajik, and UK.
GNOME Maps 3.10 Beta 2 adapts to, and depends on GeoClue 1.99.3 or later. More details can be found in the official raw changelog.
