- [!] reverse geocoding function rev_geocode_OSM added
- [!] tm_logo added
- added popup.vars to base layer functions
- bounding box (argument bbox in tm_shape) working in view mode
- geocode_OSM improved: a SpatialPointsDataFrame can now be returned
- last_map added, which retrieves the last produced map
- crop_shape can also handle polygons as cropping area
- append_data improved; the under and over coverage information can be retrieved with under_coverage and over_coverage
- interpolate parameter added to tm_rasters
- added support for custom legend formating functions
- legend items can now be stacked horizontally
- legend width and height can be determined fully manually (with negative values for legend.height and legend.width)
- argument interval.closure added to layer functions to determine where intervals are closed
- added warnings for non-supported elements in view mode
- fixed raster brick bug

- added tm_polygons, which is a combination of tm_fill and tm_borders
- fixed several small bugs
version 0.8
- added tm_raster
- improved legend behaviour: legend titles should be set in the layer functions (instead of in tm_layout)

- improved all examples for approx_areas, calc_densities
- fixed bug regarding drawing a frame with outer.margins=0.
- fixed bug in plotting blubbles

- added functions to get and set polygon directions, and to calculate the intersection ratios of polygons (intersection_shapes)
version 0.6
- this is the the first CRAN version
- a newer version may be available on
