WME v1.6 Release - Official Feedback Thread

Wed Mar 26, 2014 1:09 pm

Hey guys! a new editor version is upon us with many new exciting features.

First I should clarify that this version will only be available in North America for a bit while we finish setting up some things behind the scenes. This will take some more time (a few weeks) and then it will also be available in the World and Israeli environments.

So... whats new?

Places
  • Landmarks are now renamed to 'Places'
  • There can be places of Points / Area types
  • Area places can have a defined navigation point that the routing will work with
  • Each place can have a defined street / house number
  • New categories - each place can have multiple categories, and new more useful categories have been defined.
Closed problems display - both MPs and URs from the last week are displayed.

New much better looking layer panel

Links from live map to the editor now take you to the correct zoom level

Links from the editor to the livemap (header) now lead you to the same location

Elements are automatically selected after you draw them for the first time

New handsome UR / MP / turn icons

We have increased segment width a bit so it is easier to select

And a few more minor bug fixes.

There are some known issues:
  • Some places are missing - during the migration from the old to the new system some places did not make it - we are working on restoring them. It is a bit more common in Canada.
  • Overlapping places - in a few places there are duplicate or very similar Places on of top of another. It is safe to delete one of them.
Both these issues are quite rare.

Please let us know if you see any additional issues or have any feedback at all.

Oh goodness. Here we go.

Request: Can we have an option to turn off old reports? Or instead of a ... symbol, maybe a X symbol?

Is the "landmark freeze" still in effect temporarily for the editor? While I can see the new Places, I cannot edit any Area or add a new Point or Area.

Indeed, it appears Places are locked and cannot be added or updated yet.

Looks like we missed this in testing: when a Place is selected, the left sidebar still reads "One landmark selected" Could we get a quick update to fix that?

Did we lose all of the old URs and MPs? I cleared my browser cache and don't see any of them yet in the new version.

They are still there. Some browsers don't pick up on the changes right away. Cache and force reload usually does it.

They are working on unfreezing it.
