  • Ride Leaders are now auto-subscribed to the maps that they are leaders for. They cannot be unsubscribed unless they are removed as ride leader. I don't think this will be a problem, but if any ride leaders get annoyed by this, let me know and I'll reconsider it.
  • Fixed a bug with the Garmin Map Elevation Display where some maps would crash the renderer.

  • The number of new forum posts should be displayed on the homepage now, allowing people to easily determine when a new posting has been made.

  • Bugfix for the Garmin downloads. Elevation information should now be present. I had made an assumption that the data I was receiving from Google was more precise than it actually was and it caused a number of arithmetic errors when trying to merge elevation with spherical coordinates, thus causing the elevation calculations to be zeroed out. This *should* be fixed, but I'm not 100% sure, so keep an eye out.
  • The forums have now been made public. There's virtually no traffic on them, and nobody is posting private information. I want to make them easier to use and participate in, so the log in requirement to read them has been removed. You must still log in to post replies, however.

  • Small bugfix with the course editor to fix "frozen" maps.
