I released a small update to GeoLocateFox that contains the following changes:
- Update to use Yahoo Map API v. 3.0 (Yahoo now supports more non-North American Locations!!!).
- Add support for newer Flock.
- Slightly better compressed images.
- Updated some url’s to project page.
I should also note that Yahoo’s maps are a improved (a TON).
You can find the latest release here.
And in even bigger news…
I have a new beta release available (here) that contains support for Host IP lookup using the Hostip.info database. This will find tons more locations (and the database improves all the time).
To enable the Hostip feature, open the extensions manager (Tools Menu –> Extensions) and right click on GeoLocateFox and select “Options”. There is checkbox on the right side to enable this feature. It’s off by default because it requires sending the IP address of the website you visit to the Hostip.info server.
This is a beta, though I’d love to know how it works for people.
