We will be making the current weekly version the new quarterly version on the week of May 31, 2021. The versions will then be:
3.42 will be retired.
If you don't specify a version (or request a retired version), you will be served a default version, which depending on your key configuration will be either 3.44 or 3.45. But a developer specified version will always be honored and served when requested when it's an existing version.
What do I need to know?
Additionally, when using the Geometry Library
the following variables are no longer exported into the global namespace: Spherical, PolyGeometry, and PolylineCodec
. These facilities will remain available in their intended namespace within google.maps.geometry
What do I need to do?
While we took every precaution to minimize the chance of disruption and estimate the risk of breaking existing pages as very low, we evaluated that customers using the API with the Geometry Library
are the most likely to be affected by side-effects of these clean-ups, as well as users of Internet Explorer.
How can I get help?
If you determine that your web page requires polyfills, we recommend https://polyfill.io
to that effect.
