Overnight we published Jason’s Release 2013.6, in which he added an important new “Location” contact type, maps, and sunrise/sunset times.

Setting a location or venue for an event was never particularly straight forward, as the number of questions we receive in our public chatroom or helpdesk made clear. So we’ve gone in and simplified the entire process of working with locations and extended it to make it even more useful.

Here’s an example of the reworked event editor showing the Táve office as this event’s location:

Updated event editor with locations, sunrise/sunset, and a map

Once we set the location, the sunrise and sunset details appear and the map zooms in on the location.

Lots of smaller updates and fixes were also rolled into in this release, so head on over to the Release Log for the full details.
