You can now save the current map view as the default view by selecting the Save current map view as default view option. The map's center point (or tracked target callsign), zoom level and map type will be saved in the settings cookie, and recalled when you next visit the site (unless another specific location or callsign is requested).
The beacon list view gained a lot of speed after an optimization. Looking up beacons sent by a callsign now takes milliseconds instead of seconds. I had to recreate a database table to do this, though, and some history was lost, but hey, they were only beacon packets. We'll get new ones for free!
