I see the differences to Geolocation, but I still get an error when the Google Earth Plugin tries to load:

“This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at ”http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/javascript/v2/introduction.html#Obtaining_Key.“>http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/…”

Looks like some new fixes just got implemented. Will we get a list of them, Angelko?

New fixes? It looks like pressing the “Next” button defaults to “most popular” rather than what the user selected in their first search. Try setting the search to “most recent” then “go” then note that the selector goes back to “most popular” and when you hit “next” you get a page of popular pans. The filter selector logic is getting messed up.

Great to see the new fixes to the website today – I’m particularly pleased to see that Most Popular Galleries now does what it should. :-)

Please update us with a full list of fixes, Angelko. I don’t think you ever got around to it after the last round of updates. :-(

[Update: Okay, my favorite update is officially the addition of “Geology” to the categories list. :-) Of course, it also means I’m going to end up spending many hours editing the categories of my 900+ GigaPans and 80+ Galleries. :-( Hmmm, maybe I can put Berti and Edi on that task…]
