Photo unrelated to upgrade! Some floppies we found at the
OH2K club station while cleaning and discarding old stuff.
Quite nostalgic stuff for me.
I just finished upgrading It's been a while since the last full upgrade (a few small patches have been applied in the meanwhile). Here's a summary of the changes:

A fix for Internet Explorer 11. The real-time map view now loads and works on IE11, which has just become available to the general public.

When running on a mobile device (ipad, android tablets, etc), the callsign input form field no longer gets focus automatically during the map load process. It tends to pop up the on-screen keyboard, which is quite annoying. On non-mobile devices the automatic focus still happens, so that you can start typing in a callsign right after opening up the site.

Google Maps API code upgraded to version 3.13. I somehow suddenly get flashbacks from Donald Duck comics. Odd.

Some internal code refactoring was done in the API and authentication code. If all went well, no visible changes to anyone.
