Google Maps JavaScript v2 API To Be Removed

If you’re using the Google Maps JavaScript API v2 (and 78 of you are), your plugins will break on May 19th. This means we’ll not be accepting any plugins that use the old code (and probably will close your plugins that do if you don’t fix ’em).

From Google, Google Maps JavaScript v2 (Deprecated)

The Google Maps JavaScript API Version 2 has been officially deprecated as of May 19, 2010. The V2 API will continue to work until May 19, 2013. We encourage you to migrate your code to version 3 of the Maps JavaScript API.

The Google Maps API lets you embed Google Maps in your own web pages with JavaScript. The API provides a number of utilities for manipulating maps (just like on the http://maps.google.com web page) and adding content to the map through a variety of services, allowing you to create robust maps applications on your website.

The Maps API is a free service, available for any web site that is free to consumers. Please see the terms of use for more information.

To use the Maps API on an intranet or in a non-publicly accessible application, please check out Google Maps API for Business.

So please update your plugins.
