1.Feature GPS Status visibility. Now users are able to setup their GPS visibility to others. When you start sending your GPS positions, you have three options:
  • Your position and name are visible to everyone.
  • Your position is visible, but others see you as an anonymous user.
  • You are not visible in the GPS mode to anyone except of your contacts.
2.Feature Chat privacy. Now you can setup chat restrictions. Two options are available: everybody can send you a message or your contacts only.
3.Feature Now the speed of users with GPS receivers is displayed in the map window.
4.Feature The text rendering and readability was significantly improved (especially on a bright background).
5.Feature The Options dialog is now available. Now it contains just a few options but it will be extended later.
6.Feature The measurement units (metric or US) can be selected in the Options dialog.
7.Feature The information that user enters while selecting photos for a community is automatically saved to a hard disk. It is restored in the case of failure.
