We’ve wrapped up our second day in Lausanne, making good progress on a number of fronts.
Our examples have always been the richest source of learning material for OpenLayers newcomers. The example search page got a well deserved overhaul today – making it more convenient to find relevant code samples. In addition to the nicer layout for mobile and desktop browsers, you’ll also get results for partial word matches from the search box.
You can now grease up your slippery maps with kinetic panning. By setting the
enableKinetic to true on your DragPan control, you’ll build momentum while drag-panning and slowly lose it after releasing the map.
If you’re only targeting touch enabled devices with your mapping application, you can use the new TouchNavigation control. Our default Navigation control is mobile ready by default, but you can generate a smaller build of the library if you’re only handling touch related navigation.
Work continues on other fronts as we design example applications for both jQuery Mobile and Sencha Touch, dig for performance enhancements, explore offline storage strategies, look for ways to support touch-limited devices, and, oh yeah, fix bugs (sorry Android draggers). Keep an eye out for new mobile examples and other updates.
