2.6.0

Features and improvements

  • Add support for a variety of new map projections beyond the standard Web Mercator. Alternate projections can be used together with all existing styles and sources. The projections eliminate distortion as you zoom to make them useful at every scale. Supported projections include albers, equalEarth, equirectangular, lambertConformalConic, naturalEarth and winkelTripel. Change the projection by setting it in the map constructor: new Map({ projection: 'winkelTripel', ... }). (#11124)
    • Limitations: Non-mercator projections do not yet support terrain, fog, free camera or CustomLayerInterface.

  • Add support for dynamic filtering of symbols based on pitch and distance to map center. ["pitch"] and ["distance-from-camera"] expressions can now be used within the filter of a symbol layer. (#10795)
  • Improve user accessibility: conveying only aria-label in controls, replace aria-pressedwith aria-expanded in the attribution control, interactive markers with popups express an aria-expanded state, and interactive markers have the role "button". (#11064)
  • Add support for conditionally styling most paint properties according to the presence or absence of specific images. (#11049)
  • Add support for attaching events to multiple layers with map.on(), allowing users to retrieve features under the mouse or touch event based on the order in which they are rendered. (#11114)(h/t @omerbn)

    • Note: This change will bring the following changes for CJK text blocks:
        1. For vertical CJK text, all the characters including Latin and Numbers will be vertically placed now. Previously, Latin and Numbers were horizontally placed.
        1. For horizontal CJK text, there may be a slight horizontal shift due to the anchor shift.
  • Improve character alignment in labels with mixed CJK and Latin characters by adding support for descender and ascender font metrics.(#8781)
  • Improve terrain performance by reducing number of framebuffer switches during draping.(#10701)

2.0.0

⚠️ Breaking changes

  • mapbox-gl-js is no longer under the 3-Clause BSD license. By upgrading to this release, you are agreeing to Mapbox terms of service. Refer to LICENSE.txt for the new licensing terms and details. For questions, contact our team at https://support.mapbox.com.
  • Beginning with v2.0.0, a billable map load occurs whenever a Map object is initialized. Before updating an existing implementation from v1.x.x to v2.x.x, please review the pricing documentation to estimate expected costs.
  • Deprecate Internet Explorer 11, no longer supported from this release. (#8283, #6391)
  • Support for unlocked pitch up to 85°. The default maxPitch is increased from 60° to 85° which can result in viewing above the horizon line. By default, this area will be drawn transparent but a new sky layer can be added to the map in order to fill this space. The legacy behavior can be achieved by simply adding maxPitch: 60 to the map options when instantiating your map.

Features and improvements

  • Add 3D terrain feature. All layer types and markers can now be extruded using the new terrain root level style-spec property or with the function map.setTerrain(). (#1489)
  • Add support for unlocked pitch up to 85° (previously 60°). (#3731)
  • Add a new sky layer acting as an infinite background above the horizon line. This layer can be used from the style-spec and has two types: atmospheric and gradient.
  • Add a free form camera API, allowing for more complex camera manipulation in 3D, accessible using map.getFreeCameraOptions() and map.setFreeCameraOptions().
  • Improve performance by adopting a two-phase tile loading strategy, prioritizing rendering of non-symbol layers first.
  • Improve performance by avoiding parsing vector tiles that were already aborted.
  • Improve performance by adopting a preemptive shader compilation strategy. (#9384)
  • Improve performance by disabling fade-in animation for symbols and raster tiles on initial map load.
  • Improve performance by defaulting to 2 workers on all platforms. (#3153)
  • Improve performance by loading tiles on the main thread at initial map load.
  • Improve performance by using better worker task scheduling.

🐞 Bug fixes

  • Avoid reloading raster and raster-dem tiles when the RTLTextPlugin loads.
  • Add runtime evaluation of label collision boxes for more accurate symbol placement at fractional zoom levels and tilted views.
  • Fix tile cache size for terrain DEM sources.
  • Prevent holding on to DEM memory on the worker.
  • Reduce memory used by fill-extrusions.

🛠️ Workflow

  • Run render tests in browser.

1.9.0

With this release, we're adding a new changelog policy to our contribution guidelines.

This release also fixes several long-standing bugs and unintentional rendering behavior with line-pattern. The fixes come with a visual change to how patterns added with line-pattern scale. Previously, patterns that became larger than the line would be clipped, sometimes distorting the pattern, particularly on mobile and retina devices. Now the pattern will be scaled to fit under all circumstances. #9266 showcases examples of the visual differences. For more information and to provide feedback on this change, see #9394.

Features

  • Add within expression for testing whether an evaluated feature lies within a given GeoJSON object (#9352).
    • We are aware of an edge case in which points with wrapped coordinates (e.g. longitude -185) are not evaluated properly. See (#9442) for more information.
    • An example of the within expression:
      "icon-opacity": ["case", ["==", ["within", "some-polygon"], true], 1, ["==", ["within", "some-polygon"], false], 0]
  • Map API functions such as easeTo and flyTo now support padding: PaddingOptions which lets developers shift a map's center of perspective when building floating sidebars (#8638)

🍏 Improvements

  • Results from queryRenderedFeatures now have evaluated property values rather than raw expressions (#9198)
  • Improve scaling of patterns used in line-pattern on all device resolutions and pixel ratios (#9266)
  • Slightly improve GPU memory footprint (#9377)
  • LngLatBounds.extend is more flexible because it now accepts objects with lat and lon properties as well as arrays of coordinates (#9293)
  • Reduce bundle size and improve visual quality of showTileBoundaries debug text (#9267)

🐞 Bug fixes

  • Correctly adjust patterns added with addImage(id, image, pixelRatio) by the asset pixel ratio, not the device pixel ratio (#9372)
  • Allow needle argument to in expression to be false (#9295)
  • Fix exception thrown when trying to set feature-state for a layer that has been removed, fixes #8634 (#9305)

1.0.0

⚠️ Breaking changes

This release replaces the existing “map views” pricing model in favor of a “map load” model. Learn more in a recent blog post about these changes.

By upgrading to this release, you are opting in to the new map loads pricing.

Why is this change being made?

This change allows us to implement a more standardized and predictable method of billing GL JS map usage. You’ll be charged whenever your website or web application loads, not by when users pan and zoom around the map, incentivizing developers to create highly interactive map experiences. The new pricing structure also creates a significantly larger free tier to help developers get started building their applications with Mapbox tools while pay-as-you-go pricing and automatic volume discounts help your application scale with Mapbox. Session billing also aligns invoices with metrics web developers already track and makes it easier to compare usage with other mapping providers.

What is changing?

  • Add SKU token to Mapbox API requests #8276

When (and only when) loading tiles from a Mapbox API with a Mapbox access token set (mapboxgl.accessToken), a query parameter named sku will be added to all requests for vector, raster and raster-dem tiles. Every map instance uses a unique sku value, which is refreshed every 12 hours. The token itself is comprised of a token version (always “1”), a sku ID (always “01”) and a random 10-digit base-62 number. The purpose of the token is to allow for metering of map sessions on the server-side. A session lasts from a new map instantiation until the map is destroyed or 12 hours passes, whichever comes first.

For further information on the pricing changes, you can read our blog post and check out our new pricing page, which has a price calculator. As always, you can also contact our team at https://support.mapbox.com.

Features and improvements

  • A heatmap layer type is now available. This layer type allows you to visualize and explore massive datasets of points, reflecting the shape and density of data well while also looking beautiful. See the blog post for further details.

  • The value of a style property or filter can now be an expression. Expressions are a way of doing data-driven and zoom-driven styling that provides more flexibility and control, and unifies property and filter syntax.

    Previously, data-driven and zoom-driven styling relied on stop functions: you specify a feature property and a set of input-output pairs that essentially define a “scale” for how the style should be calculated based on the feature property. For example, the following would set circle colors on a green-to-red scale based on the value of feature.properties.population:

    "circle-color": {
      "property": "population",
      "stops": [
        [0, "green"],
        [1000000, "red"]
      ]
    }
    

    This approach is powerful, but we’ve seen a number of use cases that stop functions don't satisfy. Expressions provide the flexibility to address use cases like these:

    Multiple feature properties Using more than one feature property to calculate a given style property. E.g., styling land polygon colors based on both feature.properties.land_use_category and feature.properties.elevation.

    Arithmetic For some use cases it’s necessary to do some arithmetic on the input data. One example is sizing circles to represent quantitative data. Since a circle’s visual size on the screen is really its area (and A=πr^2), the right way to scale circle-radius is square_root(feature.properties.input_data_value). Another example is unit conversions: feature data may include properties that are in some particular unit. Displaying such data in units appropriate to, say, a user’s preference or location, requires being able to do simple arithmetic (multiplication, division) on whatever value is in the data.

    Conditional logic This is a big one: basic if-then logic, for example to decide exactly what text to display for a label based on which properties are available in the feature or even the length of the name. A key example of this is properly supporting bilingual labels, where we have to decide whether to show local + English, local-only, or English-only, based on the data that’s available for each feature.

    String manipulation More dynamic control over label text with things like uppercase/lowercase/title case transforms, localized number formatting, etc. Without this functionality, crafting and iterating on label content entails a large data-prep burden.

    Filters Style layer filters had similar limitations. Moreover, they use a different syntax, even though their job is very similar to that of data-driven styling functions: filters say, “here’s how to look at a feature and decide whether to draw it,” and data-driven style functions say, “here’s how to look at a feature and decide how to size/color/place it.” Expressions provide a unified syntax for defining parts of a style that need to be calculated dynamically from feature data.

    For information on the syntax and behavior of expressions, please see the documentation.

0.10.0 (Aug 21 2015)

Breaking changes

  • Switched to [longitude, latitude] coordinate order, matching GeoJSON. We anticipate that mapbox-gl-js will be widely used with GeoJSON, and in the long term having a coordinate order that is consistent with GeoJSON will lead to less confusion and impedance mismatch than will a [latitude, longitude] order.

    The following APIs were renamed:

    • LatLng was renamed to LngLat
    • LatLngBounds was renamed to LngLatBounds
    • Popup#setLatLng was renamed to Popup#setLngLat
    • Popup#getLatLng was renamed to Popup#getLngLat
    • The latLng property of Map events was renamed lngLat

    The following APIs now expect array coordinates in [longitude, latitude] order:

    • LngLat.convert
    • LngLatBounds.convert
    • Popup#setLngLat
    • The center and maxBounds options of the Map constructor
    • The arguments to Map#setCenter, Map#fitBounds, Map#panTo, and Map#project
    • The center option of Map#jumpTo, Map#easeTo, and Map#flyTo
    • The around option of Map#zoomTo, Map#rotateTo, and Map#easeTo
    • The coordinates properties of video and image sources
  • Updated to mapbox-gl-style-spec v8.0.0 (Changelog). Styles are now expected to be version 8. You can use the gl-style-migrate utility to update existing styles.

  • The format for mapbox:// style and glyphs URLs has changed. For style URLs, you should now use the format mapbox://styles/:username/:style. The :style portion of the URL no longer contains a username. For font URLs, you should now use the format mapbox://fonts/:username/{fontstack}/{range}.pbf.

  • Mapbox default styles are now hosted via the Styles API rather than www.mapbox.com. You can make use of the Styles API with a mapbox:// style URL pointing to a v8 style, e.g. mapbox://styles/mapbox/streets-v8.

  • The v8 satellite style (mapbox://styles/mapbox/satellite-v8) is now a plain satellite style, and not longer supports labels or contour lines via classes. For a labeled satellite style, use mapbox://styles/mapbox/satellite-hybrid.

  • Removed mbgl.config.HTTP_URL and mbgl.config.FORCE_HTTPS; https is always used when connecting to the Mapbox API.

  • Renamed mbgl.config.HTTPS_URL to mbgl.config.API_URL.

Bugfixes

  • Don't draw halo when halo-width is 0 (#1381)
  • Reverted shader changes that degraded performance on IE

  • Expose geojson-vt options for GeoJSON sources (#1271)

  • bearing snaps to "North" within a tolerance of 7 degrees (#1059)

  • Now you can directly mutate the minzoom and maxzoom layer properties with map.setLayerZoomRange(layerId, minzoom, maxzoom)

  • Exposed mapboxgl.Control, a base class used by all UI controls

  • Refactored handlers to be individually included in Map options, or enable/disable them individually at runtime, e.g. map.scrollZoom.disable().

  • New feature: Batch operations can now be done at once, improving performance for calling multiple style functions: (#1352)

    style.batch(function(s) {
        s.addLayer({ id: 'first', type: 'symbol', source: 'streets' });
        s.addLayer({ id: 'second', type: 'symbol', source: 'streets' });
        s.addLayer({ id: 'third', type: 'symbol', source: 'terrain' });
        s.setPaintProperty('first', 'text-color', 'black');
        s.setPaintProperty('first', 'text-halo-color', 'white');
    });

  • No code changes; released only to correct a build issue in 0.8.0.

0.8.0 (Jun 15 2015)

Breaking changes

  • map.setView(latlng, zoom, bearing) has been removed. Use map.jumpTo(options) instead:

    map.setView([40, -74.50], 9) // 0.7.0 or earlier
    map.jumpTo({center: [40, -74.50], zoom: 9}); // now
  • map.easeTo and map.flyTo now accept a single options object rather than positional parameters:

    map.easeTo([40, -74.50], 9, null, {duration: 400}); // 0.7.0 or earlier
    map.easeTo({center: [40, -74.50], zoom: 9, duration: 400}); // now
  • mapboxgl.Source is no longer exported. Use map.addSource() instead. See the GeoJSON line or GeoJSON markers examples.

  • mapboxgl.util.supported() moved to mapboxgl.supported().

  • Added map.setPaintProperty(), map.getPaintProperty(), map.setLayoutProperty(), and map.getLayoutProperty().
  • Switch to ESLint and more strict code rules (#957)
  • Grab 2x raster tiles if retina (#754)
  • Support for mapbox:// style URLs (#875)

Breaking

  • Updated to mapbox-gl-style-spec v7.0.0 (Changelog). Styles are now expected to be version 7. You can use the gl-style-migrate utility to update existing styles.
  • HTTP_URL and HTTPS_URL config options must no longer include a /v4 path prefix.
  • addClass, removeClass, setClasses, hasClass, and getClasses are now methods on Map.
  • Style#cascade is now private, pending a public style mutation API (#755).
  • The format for featuresAt results changed. Instead of result-per-geometry-cross-layer, each result has a layers array with all layers that contain the feature. This avoids duplication of geometry and properties in the result set.
