Maps Adds Notifications and a Cool Popover!

GNOME Maps recently added some new things towards to 3.14 release. The first nice new feature on GNOME Maps is the addition of application notifications.

maps-notify

This came from Mattias Bengtsson (#723996) and you can’t currently trigger it. Those figures show some sample notifications for demonstration.

Second new thing is a UI change, with the use of a popover to change the map layer (Aerial and Street). This was the old “Gear button”, which changed icon and it also moved from right to left.

maps-popover

The patches are from Dario Di Nucci (#725352)

Below there isn’t anything new, but apparently the icons are broken on my Fedora 20 / GNOME 3.12 installation, so it is new for me ;)

maps-search

GNOME Maps is one of those apps that have a long way to go for matching the very advanced mockups that currently exist, but on the other hand is a JavaScript application, which make it easy to find contributors and progress further.
