2.4.0-beta.1

✨ Features and improvements

  • Add showUserHeading option to GeolocateControl that draws a triangle in front of the dot to denote both the user's location, and the direction they're facing.(#10817) (h/t to @tsuz)
  • Add support for text-writing-mode property when using symbol-placement: line text labels. (#10647)
    • Note: This change will bring the following changes for CJK text blocks:
    • 1. For vertical CJK text, all the characters including Latin and Numbers will be vertically placed now. Previously, Latin and Numbers were horizontally placed.
    • 2. For horizontal CJK text, there may be a slight horizontal shift due to the anchor shift.
  • Improve character alignment in labels with mixed CJK and Latin characters by adding support for descender and ascender font metrics.(#8781)
  • Improve terrain performance by reducing number of framebuffer switches during draping.(#10701)
  • Improve behavior of vertically aligned line labels with horizontal text by adding stickiness to their flip state, preventing them from flickering. (#10622)
