Stable – read slow changing. Yesterday Google has announced new version of its Google Maps API. This time it is not new feature full release, it is promise to keep API version not updated every two weeks.
I mean – it is good that Google offer a lot new features, but from developer point of view it is not good thing in application maintenance terms. New features often have some side effects or just API changes and applications even not using new features has to be adjusted to this new release. Or at least tested ;)))
For me it additional overhead, since I do develop RNS, but currently is not my main focus. Stable GM API version means less maintenance work for me, and more time to think and implement new features (not only in RNS but mainly FriendsFeedMe)
